Sammy Sosa’s Corked Bat Barrel Found, Up For Auction

The barrel of Sammy Sosa’s infamous corked bat, lost in the confusion seven years ago at Wrigley Field, has surfaced. An online auction house (schulteauctions.com) is selling the missing chunk on behalf of the man who found and hid it the night of June 3, 2003 — former Cub Mike Remlinger.  Remlinger was the eventual winning pitcher that night in a 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, a game in which Sosa’s bat broke in two on a first-inning grounder to second base, exposing cork, and to some extent, exposing Sosa.
