MBU, Pujols Foundation team up for 4th Annual All-Star Basketball Game

Missouri Baptist University basketball faced a favorite opponent — Albert’s All Stars — on the evening of Sunday, Feb. 15.

The Pujols Foundation and MBU teamed up for the fourth annual Albert Pujols All-Star Basketball Game at the Carl and Deloris Petty Sports and Recreation Complex.

MBU basketball competed against the Pujols’ All-Star team.  The team consisted of teenagers and young adults with Down syndrome. Pujols and other celebrity athletes including Lance Lynn, Brad Thompson, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Fredbird played alongside the All-Stars.

The Pujols Family Foundation was founded by Albert Pujols and his wife, Deidre Pujols, in 2005. The Pujols Family Foundation assists those living with Down syndrome and improves the quality of life for those impoverished in the Dominican Republic.
