What Happened To Sammy’s Face?

Much like Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro after the steroids hearing prompted by Jose Canseco's tell-all book, Sammy Sosa has kept a somewhat of a low profile after his retirement. In May of this year, Sosa attended a People Magazine event and looked like he could still hit 50 home runs without even trying. This... Continue Reading →

Brady Anderson’s SHOCKING year!

Sometimes it's hard to remember 1996, what with all the coverage given to stars like Albert Pujols.
