TEMPE Wade Davis Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — at the United Nations to receive an award. On Saturday, he played in a “B” game on a back field at the Los Angeles Angels’ complex, and Sunday, he tuned up for the season by going 3 for 3, including his first spring home run.When Pujols eventually retires from baseball, he wants to be remembered more for what he’s done off the playing field rather than his monster home runs.On Friday, the U.N. Women for Peace Association presented its Humanitarian Award to Pujols, wife Deidre and their “Strike Out Slavery” anti-human trafficking group. The Pujols have devoted themselves to fighting human trafficking in the U.S. and around the world.“It was an opportunity to receive an award but it’s an award that I share with so many people,” Pujols said Sunday. “We are just one of the groups of so many people who are fighting against human trafficking. To be honored like that is great but it’s something that we share with a lot of people in our lives. It was really unique and really an honor to be there.”Pujols, 39, enters his 19th season with 3,082 hits and 633 home runs but ask him what’s important once his playing days are over and it has nothing to do with baseball.“I consider myself blessed and fortunate to use this platform that God has given me in baseball for a moment like this,” Pujols said. “It’s more than the game. I think at the end of the day, I want to be remembered as a strong valued guy who loves the Lord http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , loves his family, and will do whatever it takes for the community.“We allow ourselves to change and to help other people in need and I think that’s the platform that we should use as celebrities, as baseball players, as actors, basketball, whatever sport you play,” he said. “I think there’s more than the sport that you play and we are blessed and we have been given this gift. At the end of the day, I want God to look at me and say, ‘Well done.’ I don’t want him to say, ‘What have you done with the gift that I gave you?'”At least four Major League teams (the Angels, Nationals, Mets and Royals) will host events this season to raise awareness of human trafficking in connection with the Pujols’ “Strike Out Slavery” organization. It’s a step.The three-time Most Valuable Player has his own Pujols Family Foundation, which makes mission trips to the Dominican Republic as well as works with children who have Downs syndrome. The “Strike Out Slavery” group is separate from the foundation. All of the efforts are important to Pujols.“I can’t tell you when I’m done playing what I’m going to do because I really don’t think about the future,” Pujols said.Fans don’t often see 10-time All-Star players on a back field in an early morning “B” game. For Pujols, it made sense.“I’m at this point that as a veteran guy Adam Ottavino Jersey , you know what you need to do to get ready for whenever the season opens,” he said. “I also don’t want to screw up the plans that the manager has — this gives him an opportunity to see other guys.”Pujols wants to make a difference on the field and off it.“He’s a once in a lifetime player and guy,” Angels teammate David Fletcher said.NOTES: Mike Trout also hit his first home run on Sunday, connecting against the Athletics’ Marco Estrada. Trout did well in a golf tournament on Saturday. “I’ve always thought golf didn’t mess up a baseball swing for me,” Trout said. “I just like competing, it doesn’t matter what it is.” … Third baseman Zack Cozart was scratched from Sunday’s lineup because of tightness in his left calf. He was to be evaluated on Monday. Cozart said he felt his calf tighten up during baserunning drills. … Left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney is being pushed back because of inflammation in his elbow. He has been able to play catch. Manager Brad Ausmus said they were taking a “cautious” approach. … Justin Bour, who made his spring debut on Saturday as the designated hitter, was expected to play first base on Tuesday. Bour has been hampered by a tender right hamstring. … Felix Pena is making a good impression in the battle for the fifth starter spot. “If Felix Pena only had to go through the lineup once, he’d be extremely effective,” Ausmus said. “But if he could get through the lineup a couple times, he’s a lot more valuable.” … Two-way player Shohei Ohtani, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, took 20 swings in the batting cage Sunday. SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — With six-time Gold Glove winner Alex Gordon in left and speedy Lorenzo Cain in center, the Kansas City Royals‘ outfield defense ranked among the best in the majors for the six years they were together.That changed last season when Cain joined the Milwaukee Brewers.Royals manager Ned Yost started nine different players in center last year. Brian Goodwin made the most with 32 games.Gordon started in center field 11 times. Can he name the other guys who played there?“I don’t know Pat Valaika Jersey ,” he said. “Put me on a spot like that I can’t do that.”The Royals believed they solved their center field issue for this season by signing free agent speedster Billy Hamilton, who was considered one of the best defensive outfielders in the National League while with the Cincinnati Reds.“We’re looking forward to seeing what he can do in that big outfield in Kauffman,” Gordon said. “I haven’t played with him yet. Hopefully we can develop a history like me and Lo-Cain. I know the balls I need to get. He knows the balls he needs to get.”“That’s kind of what me and Lorenzo Cain had. We knew each other that well. Hopefully me and Billy can establish that chemistry, too. Through spring training we’ll talk, we’ll figure it out,” he said.Yost is looking forward to seeing the tandem rob opposing batters of hits.“That’s what spring training is for, getting comfortable with the communication, comfortable with what each other can do,” Yost said. “It’s just like a sixth sense. They don’t have to see him to know where he is. The more they play out there, the more comfortable they’re going to be. They’re going to cover a lot of ground.”The 35-year-old Gordon, who is in the final year of a four-year $72 million contract, remains a fitness fanatic, but has altered his workouts.“I used to work out in the mornings in spring training,” Gordon said. “I can’t do that anymore because I’m older and my body can’t handle it. It’s just an adjustment to how your body feels.”“The main purpose is to be healthy and out there contributing. Everybody has a different routine, different setup. As you get older you definitely have to adjust. I’d just get sore and worn down. I’m just trying to be smarter about it. I don’t lift weights during the season. I just said heck with the weights. I think it was putting too much stress on my body Daniel Castro Jersey ,” he said.Gordon played seven games last year before going on the disabled list in April with a left hip injury.“Probably the best thing that happened to me last year was going on the DL even though it stunk, but coming back I felt rejuvenated and felt like I found my swing,” Gordon said.“During the season you’re playing every day. It’s hard to make adjustments and that’s what I needed to do. It was like 13 days, I went into the cage and did small things off the tee and got back to where I felt like worked for me.” He said.After hitting .208 in 2017, Gordon hiked his average to .245 last season.He hit .302 with a .491 slugging percentage in his final 13 games.After he was moved to the third spot on Sept. 7, Gordon drove in 17 runs in 21 games.Whit Merrifield, who led the American League in hits and stolen bases, and Adalberto Mondesi were batting in front of Gordon.“It was fun to come up to bat and have someone on base every time,” Gordon said.“Just the pressure they put on the opposing pitcher, they weren’t even worried about me. It was fun to hit in front of those two and watch them run wild.”

First of all, any treatments tennis ball has come a long avenue from your previous household leather one’s reported old. Many soon might be a massive variety of colors for that reason making use of silicone partitions producing easy to golf club grip. Furthermore include weight lifting between people to 80 british pounds you can deviate effectiveness fit the bill. Because they reversal and will eventually possibly be threw within, just the thing for using you have to while using unique actuations instead of the remedied your current associated with weights
