Sammy Sosa held his 47th birthday party in Dubai

Tuesday November 17th, 2015

Sammy Sosa turned 47 recently and the retired baseball player took a page out of Adrian Peterson’s party planning playbook with an Arabian-themed get-together, although the slugger went a few steps farther, heading to Dubai to get a real taste of the Middle East.

The party looked to be quite a lavish affair with traditional clothing, people kissing Sosa’s hand and a man in a superman outfit holding glow in the dark champagne bottles.
