Albert Pujols is a Dominican-American professional baseball first baseman and designated hitter for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB).

During spring training in 2001, incumbent first baseman Mark McGwire said to Cardinals manager Tony La Russa that if he did not promote Pujols to the major league roster, “it might be one of the worst moves you make in your career.”

La Russa later recounted the “myth” that Pujols only made the Opening Day roster in 2001 because Bobby Bonilla was injured. According to La Russa, he and the rest of Cardinals management were impressed enough by Pujols that they decided to promote him to the big league club even before Bonilla’s injury.

Although the team did not require Pujols to fill any particular position, the Cardinals activated him to the Opening Day roster, and he started all season at either third base, right field, left field, or first base.

On Opening Day against the Colorado Rockies on April 2, Pujols became the first major league player born in the 1980s. In that game, he recorded his first career hit, a single against pitcher Mike Hampton in an 8–0 loss.

Four days later, he had three hits and three RBI – including his first home run – against the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Armando Reynoso in a 12–9 win.

On April 9, in his first career home game, Pujols hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat against Denny Neagle of Colorado.
