TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Albert Pujols says he won’t look back as he moves to a new baseball home.
Pujols left the St. Louis Cardinals after 11 seasons and signed a 10-year, $240 million free agent deal with the Los Angeles Angels in December. On Monday, he reported to his first training camp with the AL team, arriving a week earlier than he to do so he could begin bonding with his new teammates.
Pujols said he has no regrets about leaving the Cardinals and said he’s anxious “to start another chapter in my life. I’m not going to look back over my shoulder and regret the decision I made.”
Pujols has already earned his first petty fine for his phone ringing during manager Mike Scioscia’s speech to the team.
