This is a chart that was printed in our local paper - the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

This chart and photo is about the 2009 MLB baseball home run champ Albert Pujols, the All star 1st basemen of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Albert hit 47 home runs through the course of 160 games. As the chart shows he hit more than one home run on 10 different days.

Additionally he hit 5 grand-slams - when a home run is hit and all 3 bases have runners on them. This tied a 106 year record for the most in a season, and one of them made him the #1 in all of St.Louis players history.

To cap off his historic season, Albert achieved two other very important things.
He was the unanimous choice for the NL Most Valuable Player of the year - his 3rd in his 9 seasons of play.

Additionally and more significant - Albert's performance over the decade achieved the coveted "triple crown" for the DECADE. He hit for a better batting average, hit more home runs, and batted in more runs than any other player in the entire MLB for 2000-2009.
.
Pujols has already set and/or achieved almost more records in his short 9 year career than even some of the very best MLB baseball players of ALL time.

He is a very unassuming person, humble and extremely gracious both of his own abilities and to others. He donates and devotes an enormous amount of time money and resources back into the St. Louis community.
.
Most of the charitable work he does is with/for children.
