Major League Baseball star, Albert Pujols became a U.S. citizen after a ceremony at a St. Louis courthouse. Born in the Dominican Republic, Pujols plays for the St. Louis Cardinals and has won an NL MVP award, a Gold Glove and a World Series. He added a perfect 100 on his U.S. citizenship test to his resume. Pujols’ wife, Deidre, arranged to have about two dozen relatives and friends watch U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber swear in Pujols. Click here for more on Pujols.
