First baseman Albert Pujols is making history for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Pujols’ performance on Sunday, homering twice against the Milwaukee Brewers, is just an example of the heat the 42-year-old has been bringing to bat.
Pujols ranks fifth on the career homer list in MLB history and has had 10 homers and 30 RBIs in what he has said is his last season.
“I’ve been putting some good swings all year long,” Pujols said after the win on Sunday. “Sometimes, you’re going to get breaks. Sometimes you are not.”
With much of the season left, Pujols has plenty of time to make it into the 700-home run club. Here’s everything you need to know about some of the MLB’s greatest home run hitters:
