This fan will go ANYWHERE to see Albert Pujols hit a home run

Prized free agent Albert Pujols entered Tuesday's game against the Rays riding one of the longest homerless streaks of his career. Of course, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Not for Pujols -- he'll get his 30 homers, he always does.

But for David, an Angels fan from La Puente, Cal., who drove approximately 2,500 miles to St. Petersburg in hopes of witnessing No. 5's first homer as a Halo.

We caught up with David just moments after he hit a big fly while playing MLB 2K12 in the Tropicana Field parking lot. The batter -- who else? -- digital Albert Pujols.

If the real-life version of the Angels slugger can't get off the schneid against the Rays?

Well, it's only 1,100 miles to Cleveland ...
