Pujols: More than the Game

Pujols: More than the Game
By Scott Lamb and Time Ellsworth
Albert Pujols is a Saint Louis Cardinal Baseball player and one of the greatest hitters in baseball history.  The title lets you know that this book is about Pujols life and not only about baseball but also his Christian faith. It lets us know about his life on and off the field.
Pujols: More Than the Game is definitely great to baseball fans who want to know statistics, season history, etc. All of this is included, in fact, more than I cared to read about.  Lamb and Ellsworth bring in Pujols strong faith, but I thought they could have included more about how Albert and DeeDee had shared their faith and how they had helped so many people. A little bit would be told and then it would turn back to baseball and more statistics.
It was very rewarding to read about a sport athletic who is an amazing baseball player and a man of faith who isn’t afraid to let us know what he believes.
I rated this book with 3 stars.
