Biographical Information[edit]

Light-hitting catcher Luis Pujols played parts of nine seasons in the majors, mostly with the Houston Astros. In 1989, he played for the West Palm Beach Tropics of the Senior Professional Baseball Association and hit .265 in 45 games with the club.

After his playing career ended, he was a Montreal Expos coach from 1993 to 2000. He managed the Erie Sea Wolves in 2001 before joining the Detroit Tigers coaching staff for the 2002 season. However, just six games into the season he was promoted to interim manager following the firing of Phil Garner. He brought in his former boss with the Expos, Felipe Alou, to be the Tigers' bench coach, and Alou returned the favor the next year when he was appointed manager of the San Francisco Giants. From 2003 to 2006, Pujols was the team's first base coach.

In 2008, Pujols became the manager of the Corpus Christi Hooks.

Pujols was a coach for the Dominican Republic in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
