Albert Pujols takes part in a hilarious locker room dance

Although they beat the Braves in the 2020 NLCS en route to their World Series victory, they couldn’t do the same this year. Later on, he announced he would play for Leones del Escogido in the Dominican Professional Baseball League in the winter, which undoubtedly pleased fans from his home country.

On Saturday, Leones del Escogido recorded a convincing 4-0 victory over the Estrellas Orientales, triggering wild celebrations in the locker room. The team formed a train in which their entire team danced their way around the locker room, with Pujols third in line.

Following the train, they then engaged in more dance moves as they continued to enjoy. While they won Saturday’s game, Pujols’ team lost to Toros del Este 9-7 the next day to sit third in the league table. They will face the Gigantes del Cibao on November 10 in their next game.

Since making his MLB debut in 2001, Pujols shot straight to the top. While the St. Louis Cardinals recognized his talent, he moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to become an even bigger star. He initially joined the Angels before moving to the Dodgers this year.
