Albert Pujols’ wife, Deirdre laid the foundation for the trip as she has visited Belarus earlier this year as part of her @deirdrepujolsadventures trips as she travels the world for humanitarian efforts. During spring, she visited Belarus and was approached by a Belarus baseball team that invited her and her husband to come to Belarus to give some clinics and attend the Belarus championships series.

I am spending the first week of the off season in the country of Belarus ….it is a country in Eastern Europe. My wife @deidrepujolsadventures travels the world for her humanitarian efforts and in the spring of this year a baseball team found her during a visit to Belarus and introduced themselves. She has invited me to share my wisdom of baseball for a clinic and I will watch a three day national tournament in hopes we bring more people to the sport of baseball here. @mlb @mlb_players @baseball_team_minsk
