On Saturday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Albert Pujols became just the ninth player ever to reach 600 home runs. Pujols is a living legend of the baseball world, racking up impressive stats throughout his long career in both St. Louis and LA. He is the first player to reach the 600 club on a grand slam, and joins Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), Babe Ruth (714), Alex Rodriguez (696), Willie Mays (660), Ken Griffey Jr. (630), Jim Thome (612) and Sammy Sosa (609) in the elite home run club. Pujols is the fourth youngest player to reach the group, being 37. Hopefully he will continue for years to come and maybe even reach number 700.
