If you haven’t seen former Chicago Cubs‘ great, Sammy Sosa, recently, you will be shocked at what he looks like nowadays. No, he’s not fat and out of shape. No, he’s not balding. He doesn’t look like your stereotypical retired baseball player, he’s somewhat of a different type of beast.

Yes, Sammy Sosa looks nothing like Sammy Sosa anymore. Be careful when you look at this picture, you might need to put on a pair of sunglasses — you’ll see what I mean in a moment.

Sosa has turned into what looks like a vampire with cool blue eyes. It’s somewhat terrifying, but you can never hate Sosa — or can you? He did fail a PHD test and corked his bat, but still. He’s a good guy.

This picture doesn’t really speak volumes to how scared people really are to see him these days. I’m sure when he walks into a room, people’s mouths drop from shock. He is just not who he used to be. He used to be scary on the field, now he’s even more scary off it.

Sosa was one of the best baseball players of all time for the Cubs and he racked up over 600 career homers while putting baseball on the map — again — along with Mark McGwire in their awesome home run race.

This is just frightening and I hope Sammy puts away his face make-up and stops getting skin treatments, because it’s scaring the kids away. Who wants an autograph from a former baseball player, turned vampire?
