St. Louis Cardinals batter Albert Pujols has jumped into the record books, becoming the fourth player in Major League Baseball history to hit 700 career home runs.
He went into tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with 698 career homers after just passing Alex Rodriguez for sole possession of 4th place on the all-time list.
Along with Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds, Pujols is the only player in history to have accomplished this feat. Pujols is also the first and only man born outside the United States to reach that mark.
This is an evolving story. There’s more to come.
