Albert Pujols is a ferocious man with the bat, whether he's slamming home runs all over the field, or rifling line drives past (or through) the pitcher, you do not want to be in front of a well-struck ball off his bat. Two years ago, in one game, he scorched a line drive that hit San Diego Padres pitcher Chris Young, instantly breaking his nose, and then later Pujols took out catcher Josh Bard with a hard-luck slide into the plate. Albert is a motnster.
One young fan out in the bleachers learned that lesson the hard way when he took a Pujolsian bomb off the chest. As Albert's 14th home run majestically soared through the air, hundreds of grubby hands reached out with desire to catch it, but it was a little boy, sitting in the first row who was fortunate enough to have the ball come to him. He couldn't corral the ball unfortunately, despite having brought his glove to the park (FAIL) and it hit him square on in the solar plexus. He quickly burst into tears. And why not, Albert is a MONSTER.
All was not lost though, the boy got to keep the ball, and Pujols sent over a bat too, plus years from now the kid will have a great story to tell, although I'd leave out the crying, kinda makes you look like a pussy...
