Albert Pujols Signed "Scored 1000th Run" Lineup Card 6-19-2009 Versus Kansas City
A lineup card from the game where Albert scored the 1000th run of his career. Albert became the third fastest player in MLB history to reach 1000 RBIs and 1000 runs. He did it in 1306 games. A-Rod is #2 at 1301 games and Ted Williams is #1, reaching the milestone in 1146 games in 1949. So it's a pretty significant milestone.The game was played in Kansas City and the seller I purchased from obtained the card in a trade with the curator of the Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame. Albert signed the card and inscribed 'scored 1000th run'. 06/20/09 1:30 AM ET Pujols scores 1,000th career run Cards slugger pads resume in victory over Royals By Rustin Dodd / MLB.com KANSAS CITY -- Albert Pujols reached another milestone on Friday night, scoring his 1,000th career run against the Kansas City Royals during a 10-5 Cardinals victory at Kauffman Stadium. The landmark run came in the top of the third. With runners on second and third, the Royals elected to intentionally walk Pujols, who had already driven in two runs with a single in the top of the first. Right fielder Ryan Ludwick followed Pujols with a grand slam to left, and Pujols trotted around the bases and crossed the plate for the 1,000th time in his illustrious career. Pujols finished the game 1-for-3, having left in the fifth inning with the Cards up big. He was replaced by Chris Duncan at first base. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa marveled at Pujols' abilities after the game. "I just saw the replay of the hit he got," La Russa said. "That pitch is a ball. His plate coverage is amazing. He can hit the ball inside, outside." Pujols, who does not turn 30 until January, is now hitting .320 with 23 homers and 60 RBIs. Pujols, who is in his ninth season with the Cardinals, attended high school at Ft. Osage High in Independence, Mo., just outside of Kansas City. He later attended nearby Maple Woods Community College. Rustin Dodd is an associate reporter for MLB.com. This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.
