Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols and manager Tony LaRussa attended a rally held by radio and TV host Glenn Beck Saturday morning at the Lincoln Memorial. Pujols was honored for his off-field charitable work.

The Pujols Family Foundation helps people with Down syndrome and assist the poor in the Dominican Republic. Pujols was humbled by the recognition saying, he “thanks God for giving him a platform through a high-profile career — and says that allows him to be more than just being a player.”
