Albert Pujols is going back to where it all began.
Over the weekend, it was reported that the St. Louis Cardinals had interest in bringing back the three-time National League MVP. On Monday, they made it official by signing the 42-year-old Pujols to a one-year, $2.5M deal. Sure, heading into his 22nd MLB season, Pujols is a shell of his former self, but he’s defined a new, distinct role for himself in his old age: lefty-killer. With the DH coming to the NL this season, it’s quite likely that the Cards will give the 10-time All-Star a significant number of at-bats in 2022.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Despite not playing for St. Louis since 2011, Pujols is still the most recent Cardinals player to hit 40 dingers in a season. So with that in mind, how many of the last players to hit 40 or more home runs in one campaign for every MLB team can you name in five minutes?
