(London Daily Mail) Black baseball legend Sammy Sosa has caused a social media meltdown after he was spotted with even lighter skin.

Photos of the former Chicago Cubs right fielder dabbing in London on Tuesday show how much he has transformed since retiring from the big leagues in 2007.

‘Five days until Sammy Sosa’s birthday…Here he is in London!’ said a user posting a series of Tweets of Sosa and his wife in the city.

The 48-year-old Dominican-born athlete first appeared ‘lighter’ in 2009 and since then it seems the melanin in his skin has all but depleted.
