King Albert has been a fixture in St. Louis since he first came into the big leagues. He started off hot, and has really never cooled off. He is the face of the Cardinals, and has put up great numbers every year. This May he had numbers that were still above average, but not up to Albert’s standards. People were saying that he was in a slump. Major League players would kill to be in that kind of a slump.
This picture was taken last August as Albert was batting against the Nationals. Albert ended that game with an absolute bomb in the 9th inning.
