Here Is How Albert Pujols Made History
St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols impacted the world forever in his farewell season in the wake of hitting his 700th grand slam while playing against the Dodgers on Friday.
The competitor scored the gigantic achievement at the Dodgers Arena, making him the fourth part in Significant Association Baseball history to accomplish the record. He has now joined the rundown of 3 other 700 grand slam club individuals including Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Angel Ruth, ESPN announced.
Pujols, 42, hit No. 699 ball off left-given pitcher Andrew Heaney in the third inning prior to crushing another against right-hander Phil Bickford. As per ESPN, among different individuals from the 700 club, Pujols is the main one to hit numbers 600 and 700 on that very night.
Joined by his five kids whom he imparts to his ex, Deidre, Pujols considered the achievement during a post-game meeting, referring to the second as "lovely unique."
"At the point when it's truly going to hit me is the point at which I'm finished, toward the finish of the time, when I'm resigned, and most likely a little while after that I can take a gander at the numbers," he made sense of, per ESPN.
"See, don't misunderstand me, I understand what my place is in this game. However, since Day 1, when I made my presentation, there wasn't any need to focus on numbers, it wasn't really necessary to focus on pursuing numbers."
