Albert Pujols finally joined the exclusive club of players who have hit at least 600 career home runs. Before Saturday June 3, 2017, there were only 8 players in MLB history to hit 600 home runs, well now there’s 9. Pujols is one of the rare baseball players who have hit for power and average throughout his storied career. Amazingly, what most people aren’t paying attention to is that he is also closing in on 3,000 hits. Pujols is 124 hits (and counting) away from accomplishing another career milestone.
Pujols’ stint as an Angel hasn’t gone as well as he or anyone had hoped (unless you’re a Dodgers fan) but Pujols is still a feared hitter you can’t take lightly in his 17th MLB season. Even though he’s still playing I want to take some time and remember some of the more notable home runs Mr. 600 has hit during his hall of fame career.
