Sammy Sosa

Illinois, Age 9

Not only is Sammy a good baseball player he also is a very nice person. He was born November 12, 1968. He was born in San Pedro De Macoris, Dominican Republic. His dad's name is Bautista Montero, and his mom's name is Lucrecia. He had four brothers and two sisters.

People say that he is a true humanitarian. But he broke lots of records and he also was named National League Most Valuable Player in 1998, he signed a 40 million dollar contract. Sammy would like to continue to help his native country and wants to win the World Series. He was a very poor person. His dad died when he was seven years old. And he had to work to help his family.

He donated forty computers to the schools in the Dominican Republic for every home run he hit. If I could ask him a question I would ask him how much money he makes every game. I think he is a very generous person because he donates stuff to kids. The most interesting fact about him is that he was very poor when he was a kid and now he is a very famous person. I learened that Sammy was a very caring and generous person,and that he is a good baseball player.
