For fun, he learned how to play baseball with an empty milk carton as his glove and a wooden stick as his bat. By the time he was 16, he was scouted and signed by the Texas Rangers. And in 1998, Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs joined Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals in breaking the legendary Roger Maris' 37-year-old record of 61 home runs in a single season, changing the history of baseball.
