St. Louis Slugger Albert Pujols Sworn In

St. Louis Cardinal slugger Albert Pujols became a US citizen on Wednesday.

ESPN reports on St. Louis Cardinal superstar:

ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols has won an NL MVP award, a Gold Glove and a World Series. He added a perfect 100 on his U.S. citizenship test to his résumé this week.

The St. Louis Cardinals’ star became a U.S. citizen Wednesday during a ceremony at the Eagleton Courthouse. Pujols’ wife, Deidre, arranged to have about two dozen relatives and friends watch U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber swear in Pujols.

Chester Moyer, the officer in charge of the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service office in St. Louis, said Thursday that Deidre Pujols served as her husband’s tutor. Moyer said Pujols, 27, spent about a year preparing for the citizenship exam.

“He even answered a bunch of additional questions and gave us more answers than we asked,” Moyer said. “He clenched his fist and said, ‘I got 100 percent!’

“He just had a grin from ear to ear,” Moyer said. “He was thrilled to become a citizen.”
