Memphis Redbirds fans remember that for 14 games in the late summer of 2000, Albert Pujols — Prince Albert as he’s come to be known — was ours. There’s a solitary red seat at AutoZone Park that serves as a reminder of the championship-winning home run Pujols hit for the Redbirds on September 15, 2000.

Sports Illustrated’s John Donovan proclaims Pujols is baseball’s new King of Swing in his latest column.
