Albert Pujols Angels Contract Details Revealed

The signing of Albert Pujols by the Los Angeles Angels was announced by the team in a public news conference (read: pep rally) on Dec. 10 at Angel Stadium. At the time, Pujols’ contract was reported to be worth $254 million over 10 years.

That turns out to be mostly correct, according to this tweet from Bob Nightengale:

Pujols’ contract is worth $240 milllion over 10 yrs, according to #MLB and #MLBPA, excluding the $10 personal services contract

One would hope that Angels owner Arte Moreno would give Pujols a bit more than ten dollars for personal services, but maybe he’s not a good tipper. (Kidding, Arte!)

Maury Brown tweets that it’s a bit more than $10:

On the 10-yr service agreement that ends once player contract with Angels expires, Pujols gets $1M annually over the 10 years ($10M)

So the deal appears to be worth $250 million. In addition, Brown also tweeted the following perks included in Pujols’ deal:

Award bonus: MVP $500K – MVP 2nd, 3rd $75K Gold Glove $75K – Silver Slugger $75K – AS election or select $50K – WS MVP $100K – LCS MVP$75K
Pujols will contribute at least $100K annually to Angels Baseball Foundation. 1/2 direction of Pujols, half at the direction Angels
Pujols has the right to buy a luxury suite between first base and third base for all home games.
Pujols receives 4 mutually agreed-upon seats for every hm gm & right to buy the same season tix after contract ends for a term of his choice

With $250 million heading into his bank account, Pujols could probably afford to buy the entire stadium. Good luck, Albert.
