Albert Pujols - 1B - STL
Albert Pujols was at the hospital yesterday, but not for his own injury.
He is fine, but was visiting a two-year-old boy that was hit in the forehead by one of Pujols' foul balls on Monday. He brought the kid an autographed bat, an autographed hat, an autographed baseball card, two autographed baseballs, two batting gloves he wore in a recent game and a pair Nike cleats. He also posed for a Polaroid photograph with the boy and told his parents they could get free game tickets anytime. ''I'm just here to pay some family some respect,'' Pujols said. ''I'm glad he's doing better. He's a nice little kid.'' Very cool. May. 26 - 9:20 am et

Can't really comment on this except with a big
. It's nice to hear that there are still good guys in the game (business
, actually) today.
