    I just saw that, too. It's kind of cool to see an athlete like himself be a humanitarian, and no too mention raising a little girl that is not his own with down syndrome.

    Im not going to lie, I teared up a bit. He is a great ballplayer and a better man. Its nice to see superstars give back like he has.

    Never really liked him all that much until I saw that story. Class act. I am now a big fan.

    Bummed that I missed it/didn't know it was gonna be on...guess that's what happens when you don't have TV Anyone know if it will replay or be posted online somewhere?

    I did some work in St Louis a few summers ago and got to work w/ the Cardinals, Pujols, and his foundation a few times. Awesome program and one of the reasons why he's a favorite player.

    I agree, being a Cubs fan, I have always disliked him. However, after seeing that story I have gained allot of respect for him, and would love to see him in a Cub uniform, but I don't think he will ever leave the Cardinals. Hard to believe he wasn't drafted until the 13th round, and what were the Royals thinking, as he was playing in Kansas City.

    Re: Pujols 60 minutes piece!

    I missed the piece, but I've always respected him as a player, and loved how he carries himself as a man. I know St. Louis didn't want to pay him 30mil a year, but he's worth every penny.

    That being said, Cubs need a first baseman for next year...

    Re: Pujols 60 minutes piece!

    Pujols' charitable work has been well documented for many many years... Why this is news to people boggles me. Must say a lot about our media and news coverage. My guess is a lot of pros people on here hate do some commendable things in their communities, and it is something to think about before you decide whether or not you like somebody
