Luis Bienvenido Pujols Toribio (born November 18, 1955 in Santiago, Dominican Republic) was a catcher and manager in Major League Baseball. He played nine seasons with the Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, and Texas Rangers. Luis Pujols and St. Louis Cardinals player Albert Pujols are related as cousins.

After his playing career, he was an assistant coach with many teams, mainly working under major league manager Felipe Alou. He later was a coach with the Detroit Tigers and became the team's interim manager for most of the 2002 season after Phil Garner was fired. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski hired Felipe Alou to be Pujols' bench coach for the remainder of the season. An infamous incident in Pujols's year managing was when the Tigers somehow batted out of order. Pujols was released at the end of the 2002 season, during which the Tigers posted a 55-100 record, and ended up following Alou to San Francisco, where he served as first base coach until the end of the 2006 season.

On 10 December 2007, Luis Pujols was named manager of the Corpus Christi Hooks, Class AA farm team of the Houston Astros.[1]
