Albert Pujols Hits Historic Home Run – VIDEO
Albert Pujols smashed a historic home run on Tuesday night.
Pujols crushed a three-run homer off of Nick Gardewine, in the bottom half of the 7th inning, in the Los Angeles Angels' 10-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
The homer was the 610th in Pujols' great career, a number which is significant, because it vaulted him past Sammy Sosa for 8th on the all-time list, and set a new record for most long balls ever by a player born outside of the U.S.
The 37-year old Pujols, a 10-time All-Star and 3-time National League Most Valuable Player, while a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, now has 19 homers this season.
Just ahead of Pujols, in 7th place on the all-time list, with 612 career homers, is Jim Thome.
