Sammy Sosa was all smiles as he entered Miami Beach's famed Fontainebleau Hotel Saturday night for his annual birthday bash. Sosa's wife Sonia was on the former slugger's arm. He turned 41 on November 12.
Sosa's significantly lighter complexion continues to be a hot topic. He went public with it at a Latin Grammy Awards party.
One of baseball's greatest and most controversial players, Sosa said his new look is the result of a "bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and it whitens my skin some." Friends insists he is not trying to look like Michael Jackson.
Paulina Rubio performed at the birthday bash.
