OC Register: Albert Pujols pays $180,000 to support furloughed Angels employees in the Dominican Republic

Recommended Posts

Albert Pujols is helping fill the gaps the Angels left when they decided to furlough many of their employees.

Pujols is paying $180,000 out of his pocket to support furloughed Angels employees in the Dominican Republic for five months, according to a source close to Pujols.

The Angels have a complex in the Dominican Republic, and the media guide lists two coordinators of Latin American operations. There are also nine staff members assigned to the Dominican Summer League team. The media guide lists four scouts and one administrator as part of their Dominican operation.

It was unclear exactly how many Angels employees will receive money from Pujols.

Pujols, who is in the ninth year of a 10-year $240 million contract with the Angels, was born in the Dominican Republic, although he went to high school in the Kansas City area.

The Angels furloughed employees throughout the organization, citing financial issues resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and what is now at least a three-month delay to the start of the season.

Many of the furloughed employees worked in scouting and player development, departments that were particularly vulnerable because the pandemic put a stop to amateur and minor league baseball.

The Angels did opt against furloughing nine of their top scouts after Major League Baseball lifted its ban on in-person scouting this week.

The Angels also established a $1 million employee assistance fund to aid the affected employees. The furloughed employees also maintained their benefits.
