Sosa, a native of Carolina, Puerto Rico, transferred to Southwest after playing as a freshman at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. He has signed to play next season at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Sosa set a new Southwest single season record with 13 home runs and also led the Saluqis with a .392 batting average, 48 runs batted in and a .743 slugging average. In addition to All-East Central District, Sosa was named first All-TJCCAA, runner-up for TJCCAA Player of the Year, All-Region VII and Tennessee Baseball Report Player of the Week (in back-to-back weeks).
