Albert Pujols Bio

José Alberto Pujols Alcántara, (born January 16, 1980, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic), (nicknamed Prince Albert, Phat Albert, The Machine, or El Hombre) is a Major League Baseball player who started his illustrious career with the St. Louis Cardinals. Widely regarded as one of the best players in the game today, he was signed by the Los Angeles Angels following the 2011 season to a 10-year contract worth a reported $240 million.

For his first ten seasons, Albert has mounted some pretty impressive statistics: RBI (1230), runs (1186), extra base hits (849), home runs (408), hits (1900), doubles (426), batting average (.331), and OPS (1.050). In recent years, he has become an excellent defensive player at first base, winning his first Gold Glove award in 2006. During the 2006 season, Pujols became the first Major League player to hit 30 or more home runs in each of his first six seasons, and the youngest to hit 250 home runs. He extended his 30-HR streak to ten consecutive years in 2010. He was also the first player since Ted Williams (8 years: 1939-1942, and 1946-1949) to begin his career with seven straight 100 RBI seasons. He has since extended that to ten straight seasons.

Albert Pujols was born in the Dominican Republic. His father, Bienvenido, was in and out of his life from an early age. His grandmother, America, assumed many of the responsibilities of raising him.¹

Pujols was voted National League Most Valuable Player in 2005, 2008 and 2009. Below are his MVP stats.
