This fan takes a moment to reflect on Albert Pujols’ career.

“The great thing about baseball is that you never know if you are going to see something amazing when the game begins. And only rarely do you realize that you are watching greatness unfold right before your eyes. Pujols, however, was a player that I knew I had to watch. As his career has unfolded, I can honestly say that I have watched one of the greatest players in baseball history take the field, wear the Birds on the Bat and bring awe to millions.” - Matt Swisher
