The Sweetest Moment of This Year’s Home Run Derby

I love it when sports stars show what is really important in life!

At this year’s Home Run Derby, Joc Pederson and Albert Pujols showed us all just that!

After Pujols lost to Pederson in the semi-finals, he gave Pederson a hug to congratulate him, and then immediately gave Pederson’s brother, Champ, a bear hug!

Champ has Down syndrome and is one of Pujols #1 fans!  Pujols’ daughter, Isabella, also has Down syndrome, so when he met Champ several months ago the two became fast friends.

I love that these two are sweet friends, and can show the world what true friendship looks like!
