unfortunately that doesnt mean much as far as determining age. i know firsthand. :~(

i'd say he looks about 28ish but that doesnt necessarily mean anything. i went to school with a freaky looking manchild that pretty much always looked a few years older than everyone and by his freshman year of hs would have a five o'clock shadow by noon. i knew he wasnt he lying about his age though because my parents knew his family and remember when he was born. some people are just freaks of nature.

even if pujols isnt 26 or whatever he says he is, does it really matter?


My old roommate was completely bald up top at 25. He started losing his hair when he was still a teenager.

As far as how old Pujols is, we should just cut him in half and count the rings.

Well that settles it cause a second hand story from Woody Paige has to be the truth. :-t


he said that he was only a couple of years older.

remember the rafael furcal story?

Yes, and I remember the A. Soriano story. I just think that if proof was out there we would have seen it by now.

The hair doesn't mean much. I started going bald at 15. Currently, I look like I'm about 29 or 30 while I'm actually 22. For this reason I'm not going to question Pujols' age based on looks. Besides, if he were 30, wouldn't he be beyond his peak years?

He looks like he is in his early 30s, but who knows what his real age is.
Heck, Mike Lowell looks like he is 50 years old.

Pujols does look to be pretty mature. His performance is impressive enough that it really doesn't matter to me if he's 26, 30, or Cole Hamels.

This kid I play baseball with was AA Cubs last year and he's 25 but looks like he's about 30 so its not that odd.

Brad Stiles don't know if any of you minor league freaks know who he is
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

He may feel 40 by the time the media gets done hounding him in the recent Grimsley steroid story.

He looks older than he is, but I would say that he's actually 26.

Pujols went to a US college.. take it for what it's worth, but I would guess his info is valid.

My father was completely bald before he turned 28. I have a barely-receeding hairline at the same age. I still say he's 21.
