Sammy Sosa is long gone from the Chicago Cubs, having left town in a trade to the Baltimore Orioles 15 years ago after a stormy exit on the final day of the 2004 season.

But like Michael Jordan, Sammy never really left.

Every winter Sosa’s name comes up at the Cubs Convention, at which fans ask the Rickettses when he’ll be invited back to Wrigley Field. Flashbacks from Sosa’s days on the North Side appear sporadically on ESPN and NBC Sports Chicago, and he pops up every now and then in interviews, in which he usually denies having used performance-enhancing drugs
