This is pretty much no big deal as a story, but here's the money quote:
"I still have the same respect for him as I had, not just for what he's done in baseball but for what he did for his country," Pujols said. "That's something you have to appreciate."
Nice to see a big sports star who knows what is important.

Pujols . . . good for you!
It’s all over here in L.A.....and it’s far, far better than the VAST majority of fag AIDS/HIV billboards which have sprouted at every major intersection.
Good for Pujols. You have to respect him for that.
Pujols always understood who the “Man” was in St Louis. As much as I hated seeing him leave my favorite team, he always showed respect for the heritage of the franchise. Stan the Man is a living icon. Pujols understands. Stan is up there in respect of all baseball fans with Yogi Berra as class acts that are bigger than todays players egos. Pujols is one bad hombre though
“I still have the same respect for him as I had, not just for what he’s done in baseball but for what he did for his country,” Pujols said
So which country does Pujols claim; obviously not the USA
He is a US citizen. Born in the Dominican Republic, immagrated 1996 with family while still in highschool, naturalized 2007.
