Pujols by Lamb and Ellsworth

Albert Pujols is a name I was not familiar with before receiving this book. My basic knowledge of him came from reading the back cover of the dust jacket.  It seems he is a well known baseball player for the St. Louis Cardinals, and is considered to be one of the top 20 players of all times, ranking right up there with Ruth and Dimagio. Baseball is not Pujols life, it is just something he uses to share his love of Christ with the 40,000 some people that watch his games. He fully believes his Faith comes first, followed by his family, and then, finally baseball.

I was anticipating that this would be a great book for my husband, but who knew that I would enjoy it also? It did seem intriguing from the start, but I worried there might be a bit to much baseball statistics in it for my like. But I found myself fully engrossed after the first chapter, and before I knew it, I just kept going!

This book would be excellent as a valentine's gift for a husband, father, brother, or boyfriend. And my little piece of advice? Read it before you gift it! :)
