During the thick of our Little League baseball season I received this book on Albert Pujols to review. It took me awhile to read it. I am not a big sports fan, but I was interested in reading about a professional baseball player who lives his life for God. Honestly, I was tired of baseball players, their sometimes greed, cheating, and overall bad behavior. Wow, I certainly was judging MLB players and lumping them altogether. I shouldn't have done that. Albert Pujols is one of the good guys, living a life of character.
This book on Albert Pujols is a fascinating read. I especially enjoyed the chapters that told of his childhood in the Dominican Republic and his quick rise to the majors. After playing one year of college ball and one year in the minors, he began playing for the St. Louis Cardinals. He was named Rookie of the Year and has been successful ever since.
This book also tells of the importance of his faith and his family. I enjoyed learning more about one of the best baseball players of today. This book is well written. At times I had hard time getting through some of the chapters because of all of the baseball details. A sports fan would love all of the details I labored to read through.
