Albert Pujols on Fan Who Kept His 2,000th RBI Baseball “He Has the Right to Keep It”

Albert Pujols stepped into the record books again.  The Angels slugger became just the third player in history to reach the 2,000 career RBI mark.

The 39-year-old drove in the run on his 639th career home run.  Only Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez have more RBIs than Pujols.

The fan who ended up with the history making baseball refused to trade it and told officials he wasn’t after money.

Pujols didn’t have any issues with the fan wanting to keep the baseball. Pujols gets it. Baseballs that go into the stands belong to the fans who end up with them. Even if you’re not a fan of his, you can respect this move.
