Albert Pujols

MVP On and Off the Field

Series: Sports Stars with Heart

By Tom Needham

Albert Pujols is regarded as one of the best offensive players in the game and hits consistently for average and power. In recent years, he has also become an above-average defensive player at first base and in 2006 he won his first Gold Glove award. In 2005, Pujols launched the Pujols Family Foundation which is dedicated to “the love, care and development of people with Down syndrome and their families,” as well as helping the poor in the Dominican Republic.
