Albert Pujols had a busy weekend.
TEMPE http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , Ariz. (AP) —On Friday, he was in New York at the United Nations to receive an award. On Saturday, he played in a “B” game on a back field at the Los Angeles Angels’ complex, and Sunday, he tuned up for the season by going 3 for 3, including his first spring home run.When Pujols eventually retires from baseball, he wants to be remembered more for what he’s done off the playing field rather than his monster home runs.On Friday, the U.N. Women for Peace Association presented its Humanitarian Award to Pujols, wife Deidre and their “Strike Out Slavery” anti-human trafficking group. The Pujols have devoted themselves to fighting human trafficking in the U.S. and around the world.“It was an opportunity to receive an award but it’s an award that I share with so many people,” Pujols said Sunday. “We are just one of the groups of so many people who are fighting against human trafficking. To be honored like that is great but it’s something that we share with a lot of people in our lives. It was really unique and really an honor to be there.”Pujols, 39 Edwin Encarnacion Jersey , enters his 19th season with 3,082 hits and 633 home runs but ask him what’s important once his playing days are over and it has nothing to do with baseball.“I consider myself blessed and fortunate to use this platform that God has given me in baseball for a moment like this,” Pujols said. “It’s more than the game. I think at the end of the day, I want to be remembered as a strong valued guy who loves the Lord, loves his family, and will do whatever it takes for the community.“We allow ourselves to change and to help other people in need and I think that’s the platform that we should use as celebrities, as baseball players, as actors, basketball, whatever sport you play,” he said. “I think there’s more than the sport that you play and we are blessed and we have been given this gift. At the end of the day http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , I want God to look at me and say, ‘Well done.’ I don’t want him to say, ‘What have you done with the gift that I gave you?'”At least four Major League teams (the Angels, Nationals, Mets and Royals) will host events this season to raise awareness of human trafficking in connection with the Pujols’ “Strike Out Slavery” organization. It’s a step.The three-time Most Valuable Player has his own Pujols Family Foundation, which makes mission trips to the Dominican Republic as well as works with children who have Downs syndrome. The “Strike Out Slavery” group is separate from the foundation. All of the efforts are important to Pujols.“I can’t tell you when I’m done playing what I’m going to do because I really don’t think about the future,” Pujols said.Fans don’t often see 10-time All-Star players on a back field in an early morning “B” game. For Pujols, it made sense.“I’m at this point that as a veteran guy, you know what you need to do to get ready for whenever the season opens,” he said. “I also don’t want to screw up the plans that the manager has — this gives him an opportunity to see other guys.”Pujols wants to make a difference on the field and off it.“He’s a once in a lifetime player and guy,” Angels teammate David Fletcher said.NOTES: Mike Trout also hit his first home run on Sunday http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , connecting against the Athletics’ Marco Estrada. Trout did well in a golf tournament on Saturday. “I’ve always thought golf didn’t mess up a baseball swing for me,” Trout said. “I just like competing, it doesn’t matter what it is.” … Third baseman Zack Cozart was scratched from Sunday’s lineup because of tightness in his left calf. He was to be evaluated on Monday. Cozart said he felt his calf tighten up during baserunning drills. … Left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney is being pushed back because of inflammation in his elbow. He has been able to play catch. Manager Brad Ausmus said they were taking a “cautious” approach. … Justin Bour, who made his spring debut on Saturday as the designated hitter, was expected to play first base on Tuesday. Bour has been hampered by a tender right hamstring. … Felix Pena is making a good impression in the battle for the fifth starter spot. “If Felix Pena only had to go through the lineup once, he’d be extremely effective,” Ausmus said. “But if he could get through the lineup a couple times, he’s a lot more valuable.” … Two-way player Shohei Ohtani, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, took 20 swings in the batting cage Sunday. PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Eric Hosmer has been able to focus strictly on baseball this offseason and he likes what he sees with the suddenly dynamic San Diego Padres.Hosmer arrived at spring training last year after signing a $144 million http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , eight-year contract as a free agent. The buzz generated by his signing didn’t last long as he struggled in his first season with the Padres, who lost 96 games and finished last in the NL West.Now the first baseman is energized by being around new teammate Manny Machado, who last week signed a $300 million, 10-year contract, and top prospect Fernando Tatis Jr., who is expected to make his big league debut at some point in 2019.Hosmer’s deal had been the biggest in team history until Machado signed the biggest deal for any free agent.“It’s a tremendous leap for this organization,” Hosmer said. “It shows everybody what we are all about. It’s something we aren’t trying to preach or talk about. They went out, signed a player and got a guy that’s going to help us win a championship one day.”Last spring training, Hosmer had to get acquainted with new teammates and a new league. He signed his deal shortly after pitchers and catchers reported to camp. He said he didn’t get an offer from a team until mid-January and made sure he was making the right decision before deciding on San Diego.“I didn’t know much about the organization until I did my homework when I was a free agent,” he said. “Just reading about all the talent and getting to see all of that. Especially this year, with these guys getting to see what Tatis did in the winter Roberto Perez Jersey , what Franmil (Reyes) did over here last year, there’s a lot of upside where this organization is going.”Hosmer was able to shift his priories this offseason to getting his mind and body ready for baseball.“It’s definitely a different vibe for me to walk in here and be able to know a lot of the faces,” he said. “I just got to focus on baseball all offseason and that was probably the best part about it. I didn’t have to be a lawyer or agent this offseason. I can just worry about training and getting my body into the position and place it needs to be to take on 162 games and I feel like I did a really good job with that.”Hosmer hit only.253 last year, down 65 points. His 18 homers, 65 RBIs and .322 on-base percentage were his lowest in four seasons. He struck out a career-high 142 times.“I don’t really know what happened. It didn’t go the way I planned,” Hosmer said. “There’s really no excuse for that. It came down to not performing the way I wanted to perform. I took that very seriously this offseason and got everything going.”Once again, there’s a buzz in Padres camp.“I think we are at a point in time now where everybody knows we want to win and we are serious about it,” Hosmer said. “It’s not just talking. It’s not us trying to sell you guys something. It’s actions and going out and doing something.”
