Pujols is one of the best players in the MLB. You can't pitch around him because he's got such a long, searching swing. He routinely hits them into the corner and over the wall. He is quickly rising on the record charts. You can even compare his talents to that of A-Rod.
However...there's one thing that many people don't realize.
He attributes all he's done to God.
“It doesn’t matter if I hit a home run. It doesn’t matter if we win a game. It doesn’t matter if I go four for four,” Pujols says. “Whatever happens at the end of the day, as long as I glorify His name, that’s what it’s all about.”
He met his wife right after she rededicated her life to Christ after becoming a single mother. They started going to church weekly and he recognized that their relationship was nothing without God.
One of the more admirable things he does is that he attributes it all to Christ when it's at a personal level. You'll often hear a scantily clad singer at the Grammy's say "and I want to thank God!" In their personal life though, they live it as though they have no morals.
This man is different.
“The kids look at me, ‘Ah, you’re my hero.’ I want to teach those kids. ‘Hey listen, God is my hero. He died on the cross for my sins, and He’s the one. That’s how I wanna live -- like Him and I want you guys to do the same thing.’”
The fact that this man, who is a national superstar, shares his faith at such a personal level shows you how strong his faith really is.
