Pujols became the ninth member of the 600 Home Run Club and the first to ever reach number 600 with a Grand Slam.
At 37, Albert became the 4th youngest to reach that illustrious mark, joining Alex Rodriguez, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron.

I thank God for the incredible opportunity to play the game of baseball, and for blessing me in a special way last night. #600 was for my family, friends, and fans.
My work on the field is always for something greater; to glorify God and to serve others.
Congratulations to @PujolsFive on 600 career home runs! #Pujols600 pic.twitter.com/Xw8RPJiOj5

Albert Pujols is a lock for the Baseball Hall of Fame someday, but for now, he’s focused on pointing people back to Jesus through baseball.
