If you picked up the sports section of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Friday, you may have missed a full-page letter on the back. It was from Albert and Diedre Pujols. They wanted to say thank you to St. Louis fans for all their love and support over Pujols’ career as a St. Louis Cardinals.
In the letter, Pujols tells St. Louis fans “St. Louis will always remain in my heart.” He called his decision to leave incredibly difficult but says he’s excited about the new chapter in his life.
“We call St. Louis home and my family and I are so blessed to have made lifelong relationships in St. Louis that we look forward to continuing for many years to come, and words cannot fully express our gratitude to you all.”
