Dominican former professional baseball right fielder, Sammy Sosa, is not adding the term "Dominican politician and President of the Dominican Republic" to his resume according to him. The famous MLB player categorically denied reports of local press in which they indicate that he has political plans.

"That is false. I am focused on my family and my business,” Sosa said firmly to journalist Franklin Mirabal. ”I have spent my life meeting with important people of all levels and that does not indicate that I have any political plan," said the player.

The rumors began to spread when the news portal Dominicanos Hoy, reported that Sosa wanted to be president. Immediately, renowned media legend Jochy Santos, echoed the news on his radio show, giving way to a rapid spread of the rumor. Due to the misunderstanding, the Dominican press received a release on behalf of Sosa. 

Born as Samuel Kelvin Peralta Sosa in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic, Sammy Sosa is well known not only by being Chicago Cubs best hitter, but also for holding the record of hitting 60 or more home runs in a single season three times. During his career, Sosa hit his 400th home run in his 1,354th game and his 5,273rd at-bat, the quickest in National League history.

Sosa, just after a year of his divorce with first wife Karen Lee Bright, married Sonia Rodriguez. The couple has two daughters and two sons: Kenia Sosa, Keysha Sosa, Michael Sosa and Sammy Sosa Jr.
