There will be a VIP experience with Albert Pujols at Angel Stadium awaiting the winner of Pujols' All In Challenge auction once Major League Baseball returns.
The auction closed at $50,000 Thursday night after beginning at $7,500 and attracting 28 bids.
According to Fanatics' official website, this is what the 40-year-old future Hall of Famer offered:
"Go to a Los Angeles Angels game and watch in style when you win 6 seats in the Diamond Club box and Batting Practice passes to get the up-close experience before the game. Albert Pujols is inviting you to a personal, behind-the-scenes tour of Angel Stadium, after which you and five (5) guests will watch the game in the Diamond Club box that features cushioned, spacious seating, in-seat service and access to the Diamond Club Restaurant & Lounge.
"After the game, you'll join Albert Pujols for dinner at the high-end Mastro's Steakhouse where you'll get the chance to talk with the 3-time NL MVP himself. Along with the luxury game-day treatment, you'll also get to take home game-used items to add to your official collection."
