Sammy Sosa appearing everywhere lately

By Lynn Hoppes

Sammy Sosa
Sammy Sosa and his wife, Sonia, have been married since 1991 and have four children.
Sammy Sosa and his wife, Sonia Sosa, this week attended the People En Espanol's '50 Most Beautiful' Event in New York City.

Sosa, who hit 609 home runs in Major League Baseball but has been dogged by steroid allegations the past few years, has been making social appearances recently. Last week, he attended the Mana concert at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami and late March he attended a charity gala at Fontaineblue Miami Beach.

So he has not gone into hiding.

A lot still has been made about Sosa's skintone, and a few years ago, he explained why his skin is much lighter.

"It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some," Sosa told Univision about his rejuvenation treatment. "What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is."
