Full Product Description
From his birthplace in the Dominican Republic to his high-school days in Kansas City, from a single season in the minor leagues to the World Series and nine All-Star Games, Pujols has developed his immense talents on the baseball diamond, all the while focusing his direction?and the direction of his family ? with the belief that a higher power is behind every achievement.
Authors Scott Lamb and Tim Ellsworth spare no tale of this growing baseball legend, all the while accentuating ?the unseen hand of divine providence? that has shaped the man Albert Pujols has become. It?s a story that will inspire, and a reminder of the human quality behind superhuman achievement.
A story ? still in the making ? of allowing God?s strength to guide one man?s path to be the best his game has ever seen.
His numbers are staggering.
In 2010 Albert Pujols became the first player in baseball history to bat .300 with 30 home runs and 100 runs batted in for ten consecutive seasons. Babe Ruth didn?t do it. Ted Williams didn?t do it. Hank Aaron didn?t do it. The fact that this was accomplished in Pujols? first ten seasons only makes the achievement more, well, Ruthian.
Albert Pujols? story goes beyond numbers, though. Beyond the bright lights and packed stadiums of Major League Baseball. Even beyond the adulation of millions who have come to see the St. Louis Cardinal star as the rare ?once-in-a-lifetime-player? who transcends team loyalties.
Through the 2010 season, Pujols hit 408 home runs. And every time he touched home plate after sending another baseball to a random bookshelf or trophy case, Pujols pointed heavenward. Toward the strength behind his otherworldly talents, toward the inspiration that lifts him on a daily basis, regardless of his team?s place in the standings. For Jesus Christ is Albert Pujols? first love. Faith, family, then maybe baseball.
