Being from St. Louis, I can’t say enough about Albert. Despite being an amazing ball player, he is kind and very down to earth. He’s involved in a lot of charities and does alot to help the St. Louis community.

I’m very happy for the Pujols family on the addition of little Sophia! If I remember correctly, he was only 21 when he married his wife and adopted her daughter so he really took on a lot of responsibility at a young age. He really sounds like a stand-up kind of guy (just like Seal!) and it only makes me even more of a fan of his!
