(KFTK) - Some baseball fans in St. Louis may still hold a grudge against Albert Pujols for leaving the Cardinals and taking more money to play in Los Angeles – but he has proven time and time again that he's one of the most caring ballplayers in the league. 

He made another amazing moment possible for a young fan this week in Toronto.

As you can watch in the video above, Pujols came over to the stands in Toronto after a game agianst the Blue Jays and found Joe Squarini's son, Nico who was wearing an Angles jersey. Pujols took the jersey off his back, signed it, gave it to the fan, then stuck around to take some photos!
