On today's episode, Zach interviews baseball star Albert Pujols.
Albert is a professional baseball player who emigrated from the Dominican Republic to the US. He has played Major League Baseball (MLB) for the ‘St. Louis Cardinals’ and for the ‘Los Angeles Angels, and Los Angeles Dodgers.' He is a highly regarded hitter and was unanimously voted as the ‘Rookie of the Year’ in his opening season of the ‘National League’ (NL). Among the various tournaments that he has won are two ‘World Series’ and three ‘NL’ championships. He has established various records and has won several awards, including the ‘Most Valuable Player’ (MVP) of the ‘NL’ thrice and the ‘Sporting News Player of the Decade.’ Though his performance has experienced frequent ups and downs in the recent past, he continues to play for the ‘Angles’ to date and is a strong contender for the ‘Hall of Fame.’ He has had 11,000 plate appearances in his career and is the ninth player to have crossed the 600-home run mark. He is married to Deidre and has five children, including one from Deidre’s previous relationship. He and his wife launched the ‘Pujols Family Foundation,’ which creates awareness about Down syndrome. He has become a US citizen but maintains close ties with his motherland. He visits his homeland regularly and also provides assistance to the poor and the disabled there. Albert Pujols still has a lot of hard hitting left in him.
