Albert Pujols by Dennis Abrams


Albert Pujols by Dennis Abrams

This is the rags-to-riches story of baseball star Albert Pujols.Widely regarded as one of the best baseball players of our time, slugger Albert Pujols started playing the game on the streets of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Often compared to such baseball legends as Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio, he has thrilled fans with his exploits at the plate, and touched the hearts of millions with his tireless advocacy for people with Down syndrome and for the poor of his native Dominican Republic. From growing up poor to signing a $100 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, this devoted father of three has always been able to balance family time with baseball superstardom. This extensive new biography explores this MVP player's record and how he came to be recognized worldwide as one of baseball's true superstars.
