    Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa is making headlines again, and it has nothing to do with baseball. 

    Sosa, who retired in 2007, recently attended his wife's birthday party, and he ended up dressing up like a cowboy: 

    Naturally, folks on social media were all too happy to make the photos go viral, and they added their own hilarious commentary to the proceedings: 

    Sosa received 27.65 percent of available Hall of Fame votes in January, putting him well shy of enshrinement in Cooperstown. He slugged 609 home runs in his big league career, putting him ninth on the all-time list.
