Albert Pujols Game Used 2022 Home Run Derby Round 2 HR #5 MLB Hologram. This ball was hit by Albert Pujols for home run #5 in Round 2 of the 2022 Home Run Derby. Pujols struggled the first half of the season and even contemplated retiring in June due to his poor performance. The 2022 season was the first year where the commissioner selected one player from the American League and one player from the National League as legacy picks for the All-Star Game. With 2022 being his last season, Albert was selected as the representative from the National League and also participated in the Home Run Derby. He may not have won the derby, but he found something during that All-Star break that was worth so much more. The second half of the season he turned back the clocks and reminded us all why he is one of the greatest to ever play the game, smacking 17 home runs and becoming the 3rd player in MLB history with 700 home runs. I truly don’t believe he would’ve reached 700 home runs without that Home Run Derby. Here is your chance to own a true piece of Pujols and MLB history! Without this derby, Pujols would have likely retired halfway through the season and never reached the 700 home run plateau.
