 Albert Pujols grew up in the Domincan Republic where youngsters dream of being baseball stars. He’s now a young baseball player for the St. Louis Cardinals and is breaking records set by famous baseball players of the past. Baseball fan or not this biography of an unusual athlete will encourage you.

 If home runs, RBIs and other baseball stats leave you feeling alive and connected or if you like stories of someone whose life is totally committed to God and famous, you’ll enjoy this book. Pujols inspires others to become outstanding people.

 In addition to his ball playing, Albert Pujols and his wife Diedre regularly give weeks of time and millions of dollars to helping others. They strongly feel God gave them the ability and mandate to make the world a better place. Their special interests include disadvantaged people and future athletes of the Dominican Republic and Downs Syndrome children, like their oldest child. They plan to assist others through their Pujol’s Family Foundation long after Albert becomes too old to play baseball.

 Pujols speaks about his commitment to Jesus Christ at every opportunity. He knows his outstanding success as a major league baseball player comes from two things—God’s gift and his own steady strength-building. He may be the hardest working ball player alive, a source of his amazing ability to hit hundreds of home runs. He often spends up to six hours a day at a gym, in addition to other training. He’s also known as a true team player, leader and encourager, especially to younger players.

 I’ve never followed professional baseball, but reading this book leaves me excited about serving God and further developing my own abilities. Albert Pujols has become my latest sports ‘hero’.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
