I think a hero is a person who gives back. Albert Pujols is a hero because he has helped kids that have grown up like him.
Albert Pujols is a hero because he uses his fame and his money to help kids with Down Syndrome. He has won the MVP award three times. He also helped the Cardinals to a World Series in 2006 against the Detroit Tigers.
As a kid, Albert Pujols lived in a shack in the
Dominican Republic. Albert Pujols loved baseball. As a kid he did not have a baseball mitt so he would have to make one out of card board.
In high school, Albert met his wife Deidre. Deidre was older and already had a child with Down Syndrome.
Albert Pujols has a foundation called the Pujols Family Foundation. He donates money to it all the time. He helps people with Down Syndrome and mental illness.
In conclusion, that's why I think he is a hero.
