Cardinals Albert Pujols celebrates decade anniversary of Major League debut

ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols keeps looking forward. It’s part of what’s made him such a force for so long. So it wasn’t until he was asked that the slugger realized Saturday marked the 10th anniversary of his Major League debut.

Upon reflection, though, even Pujols acknowledged that it’s been a pretty remarkable 10 years.

Pujols’ first Major League game came April 2, 2001, against the Rockies at Coors Field. Batting sixth and playing left field against Mike Hampton, he singled in three at-bats in an 8-0 loss.
