Full Product Description
After only eleven seasons, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols is already one of the greatest players to have ever laced up a pair of spikes. But when adulation and glory come his way, Pujols is quick to credit another—to point people to his hero. “At the end of the day,” he says, “as long as I glorify Him, and those 45,000 people know who I represent … that’s what it’s about. It’s about representing God.” In Pujols: More Than the Game, authors Tim Ellsworth and Scott Lamb will satisfy fans who like their baseball slathered in stats and stories . . . while at the same time, shedding light on the faith that makes it all possible.
"Albert Pujols has a chance to be known as the greatest player in the history of baseball. There are numerous statistical measurements to make the point, including the simple point that through age thirty he has more homers than Babe Ruth, more hits than Pete Rose, more RBIs than Hank Aaron, and more runs than Rickey Henderson did at the same age. Yes, it’s okay to think about that for a moment.
But Pujols’ argument for greatest player ever isn’t nearly as interesting or significant as the fact that there even is an argument. That’s because perhaps the most amazing thing about Albert Pujols is that less than two years before he began one of the greatest rookie seasons in baseball history, he was a nonprospect." -Joe Posnanski, Senior Writer at Sports Illustrated (included in the Foreword)
"Pujols is full of nuggets. Given that the action in the famous poem "Casey at the Bat" starts with “Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,” I enjoyed reading that Albert Pujols asks opposing runners at first base, “If you died today, where do you think you’re going to go?” Lamb and Ellsworth lucidly describe both the season-by-season baseball exploits of Pujols and the impact he’s having on some lives for eternity." -Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-chief, World
