I was 9-years-old when Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire completely captivated the world with their amazing home run chase, a chase that pretty much saved baseball. Well fast forward almost 20 years later and the former is captivating everyone in a different manner — a very, very different manner.
The 49-year-old former MLB player recently decided to do the dab for some reason out in London. And while that move is outdated and makes everyone cringe, it’s how Sosa looks that stole the attention. Just take a look at the tweet below to see what we mean.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s the same person. Sosa has been bleaching his skin for years and that’s the result. Here’s a closer look:

Holy hell, what is Sosa thinking? Now I hope Sosa is OK upstairs, I really do, since he was a baseball hero to many folks, but since this is the internet people decided to roast him anyway. Check out some of the responses below.

ALSO: the dab is dead. I repeat: THE DAB IS DEAD. The utter uncoolness of it being done by Sammy Sosa in the streets of London while Uncle Fester in a wig has killed it. Tell a friend to tell a friend. pic.twitter.com/ghIn6QQtMi

Sammy Sosa’s transition from baseball superstar to “creepy white uncle who dabs at family outings” is nearly complete. pic.twitter.com/mVlByee8HE

Here’s hoping that Sosa rights the ship soon.
