"Albert Pujols grew up poor. Always a big fan of baseball, Pujols could not attend fancy baseball camps or buy the best equipment. His family struggled just to put food on the table. But Pujols had talent-even if it did not seem obvious to Major League Baseball scouts at first. Today, he is one of the most feared hitters in baseball. He helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series championship in 2006. Yet Pujols has not forgotten his past, and he enjoys brightening the lives of those less fortunate.
