10/01/2005: Congratulations are in order.....
to St. Louis Cardinals All-Star First Baseman Albert Pujols.
Prince Albert hit a grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning of yesterdays game against the Cincinnati Reds. The shot was Albert's 40th homer of this year, and the 200th of his career. In reaching this plateau, he is (according to my sources) the third-youngest player to hit the 200 career home run benchmark, and is the only Cardinals player in the 114 year history of the franchise to hit 40 or more home runs in three consecutive seasons (2003-05).
