Albert Pujols gets home run 600

He’s now Mr. 600.
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim first baseman Albert Pujols just made history with a big swing against Twins ace Ervin Santana, also a former Angel. With bases loaded in the fourth inning Pujols swung for the fences to become the ninth player in Major League Baseball history to hit 600 home runs Saturday.

Earlier this week, Wednesday, Pujols surpassed Babe Ruth on the all-time list for hits.
