Angels play prank on Albert Pujols after first home run of the season (Video)
Two days after being serenaded by boos from Angels fans and a day after being held out of the lineup, Albert Pujols finally blasted his first hit out of the park as a member of the Angels. During the 5th inning of Sunday’s game with the Blue Jays, in his 111th AB of the year, Pujols bombed a two-run homer that gave the Angels a 4-1 advantage. And there to greet him in the dugout was … no one.
While Pujols rounded the bases, his teammates spilled into the clubhouse as a prank, leaving the Angels dugout completely empty by the time Pujols returned. Before long, everybody returned and congratulated the slugger. Pujols was all smiles about the joke. After all, he had just gotten the biggest (rally) monkey in his career off his back. Now back to trying to get to .500, Halos.
