The 38-year-old Venezuelan slugger managed to exceed 500 home runs in August. It currently has 502.

“Of course he would have wanted him to do it in Detroit but he couldn’t, he did it in Toronto. But as the fans received it, it was very special. I’ve been through that moment and I know how it feels, how he felt when he saw that home run”, Stressed Pujols.
“We are very proud to see it and that be the first Venezuelan to achieve that feat. We are proud and happy for him, “concluded the slugger, who has 677 home runs in the majors.
