When Sammy Sosa offered his public reaction to falling far short of election to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday, caught up in the web of suspicion surrounding baseball's Steroid Era, that reaction came via a news release from a company managed by Sosa — Injex 21.
That company specializes in needleless drug injections, according to the news release and according to its website, injex21.com the front of which welcomes visitors with the headline, "A future free from needles." The site then lists insulin as one example of a medicine that can be delivered with the Injex 21 system and shows pictures of people using its products.
Sosa's uniform number during his playing career was 21.
A company biography on the Injex 21 site says Sosa was introduced to the firm in "mid 2012," and that the former Cubs icon saw it as a chance to "help millions of people. From people who are afraid of needles to those who have to subject themselves to daily self-injections and to medical workers who are at risk for puncture wounds."
That skin issue he has is gross.
