Pujols: More Than a Game

Pujols: More Than The Game is a book by Scott Lamb and Tim Ellsworth that tells about Albert Pujol's life and career. There are twenty five chapters telling this “rags to riches” story, and most of all glorifying God in each part of it. Although the book is laced with numbers and stats from his career, it does not overtake the book.

This book really lets the reader see the man behind the uniform, and how important God is in his life. Each chapter begins with a quote from Pujols, which I really enjoyed. Part 1 has nine chapters that tell of his life from Santo Domingo to St. Louis. Part 2 tells about his life in the major leagues. 

At the end of the book, there is an index where you can look up specific topics in the book and see what it says. If you like baseball, and want to know more about this man of mystery, this book will satisfy your curiosity. It's good to finally have a hero in the spotlight, who actually tries to set a good example for our children.
