Santo Domingo, Dec 3 (EFE) .- Major League Baseball slugger Albert Pujols disputes his last match with the Leones del Escogido on Friday night in the Dominican winter baseball championship.
The information was released by the general manager of the team, José Gómez, who indicated that the player and the team had arranged their performance up to this point in the tournament.
“Originally the plan we had was to play until the All-Star break,” said Gómez in this regard, leaving open the possibility that the slugger would return to uniform with the team for the remainder of the competition.
So far this season, Pujols is hitting .228 with five RBIs and four runs scored in 15 games.
Pujols’ actions on the field may not have been his best times in baseball, but his media impact on the fans and players of the league was evident.
The storied hitter is still a free agent in Major League Baseball and has expressed his desire to continue playing.
To know if he will achieve his goal, Pujols will have to wait for the strike maintained by the Players Association and MLB to end, while the Dominicans could enjoy the iconic 41-year-old player in his rookie campaign in winter baseball.
