About the Book
Christopher chronicles the life of Sammy Sosa from his birth in the Dominican Republic in 1968 to his first two truly successful scoring years with the Chicago Cubs in 1997 and 1998. Christopher adds enough statistics and descriptions of games to keep even the reluctant reader engaged in this biography. He presents Sosa as the man who truly loves his family and places their well being above his successes. Intertwined with the story of Sosa's life is information about the hardships of life for people who live in the Dominican Republic.
