There can only be one!

Well everyone, its all been building to this! After 24 weeks of competition, this week we will name our 2022 PYW’s champion! But before we do that, we first need our second half finalist! For our final prompt of the season, I asked you the best way the City of St. Louis could honor the newest member of the 700 HR Club, Albert Pujols. In third place, we have a tie between gzimmerm and SpencerO’Gara with two recs each!

At their final home game of the year, have him get pushed around the bases in a wheelchair by teammates that weren’t alive yet when the run began. — gzimmerm

That wheelchair is going to need a lot of handles...

St Louis will erect a 700 foot (higher if he hits more) statue of Albert with Waino and Yadi on either side (slightly larger than life sized). It will preside over Busch Stadium from the outfield side so you can see him alongside the arch while sitting in seats behind home plate. It will be unveiled the day all three go into the HOF as first ballot selections, 5 seasons from now. -SpencerO’Gara

Personally, I hope they make Yadi wait a season, but to show the mother****** that he can’t always call the balls and strikes, but maybe I’m biased :-)

In second place, we find Jack Sommers with 3 recs!

“The Albert Pujols Birth Registry Center”

All children registered at this center are miraculously born -5 years old!

And finally, in first place, we have NikT77 with four recs!

The Cardinals will honor Pujols with a 10 year, 240 million dollar contract

For the last time this season, let’s take a look at the standings and name our second half finalist.
