ANAHEIM -- Angels superstar Albert Pujols appeared in a short film Tuesday in partnership with I Am Second, a movement meant to inspire others through the life stories of athletes, actors, models, musicians, pastors, politicians, etc.

The short film consists of Pujols sitting on a white couch, with a black T-shirt and a black background, while talking about his life -- his move from the Dominican Republic, his marriage, his daughter with Down syndrome and, mostly, his faith.

The film can be seen on Other professional sports figures including Josh Hamilton, Matt Barkley, Joe Gibbs, Clayton Kershaw and Jason Witten have also appeared in videos.

Pujols was approached about the idea four or five years ago.

"The most important thing in my life is to be able to share my testimony with everybody," Pujols said. "I think this is a great opportunity, to see what's the most important thing in my life, which is my relationship with Jesus Christ. It was an easy yes for me."
