Albert Pujols and the rest of the Los Angeles Angels are awaiting word of when and where a 2020 MLB season will take place. Unfortunately, the future Hall of Famer is now also reportedly dealing with a serious crime allegedly committed by his father.
Pujols' dad, Bienvenido Pujols, has reportedly been charged with sexual battery of a minor in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
The elder Pujols reportedly turned himself in Friday. This news just dropped Sunday and of course at this point in time the crimes are just alleged against him.
Still, this is just horrible news, especially for the victim of the alleged heinous crime. We must respect privacy at this time, specifically for the victim's family and the Pujols clan.
This is a developing situation and we will refrain from making any definitive statements either way. The news is just shocking and our thoughts go out to the victim in this horrible scenario.
As always, all accusations must be taken seriously, and we'll have further updates when they become available.
