Albert Pujols boos Yadier Molina with Reds fans (Video)
The Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals are division rivals, which is why fans at Great American Ballpark booed loudly every time a Cardinals player was introduced at the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night.
Albert Pujols, who now plays for the Los Angeles Angels, was treated as an “honorary” Cardinal. By that we mean Reds fans gave him the same reception.
Loud boos for Albert Pujols in Cincinnati. He brushes his hand across his chest to let them know he no longer plays for the Cardinals.

When the NL roster was being announced, however, Pujols had some fun by getting in on the booing.

Pujols was directing his boos toward Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who is his close friend. He later gave Molina a big hug before the two players headed to their respective dugouts.
If Pujols wants to boo someone, he should boo that college basketball coach who sent this tweet about him during the Home Run Derby.
