The former Cubs slugger, Sammy Sosa, says the reason his skin is lighter is because of the skin rejuvenation process he is undergoing, the Chicago Tribune reported.

According to a former Cubs employee, Rebecca Polihronis, Sosa was not trying to be like Michael Jackson.

He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white, she added.
