Major League Baseball (MLB) slugger Albert Pujols, who hit 703 career home runs, is embarking on a new chapter in his baseball career as a special assistant to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred.
Pujols will advise Manfred on a variety of topics, including issues related to players from his native Dominican Republic, Reuters reported Saturday. Pujols will also continue to appear on MLB Network broadcasts as a member of the baseball analysis panel.
Commissioner Manfred called Pujols “an accomplished and respected figure in the game of baseball.” “I am very excited about this next chapter in my career,” said Pujols. “Commissioner Manfred and I share a passion for developing baseball in the Dominican Republic. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.” 스포츠토토
