Pujols Joins 500HR Club

((HT: MLB.com))

Here's 499 for starters this evening against the Washington Nationals...

He would then hit 500 later in the game and become the first player to hit both HR's 499 and 500 in the same game...

More stats:

Pujols has the fourth highest career batting average in the 500 HR club behind Ted Williams, Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx
He is the 4th player to hit 500 HR within first 14 seasons of career joining McGwire, A-Rod, and Willie Mays
Pujols, at the age of 34, is the 3rd youngest to reach 500 home runs, trailing Alex Rodriguez and Jimmie Foxx- both were 32
Pujols also hit his 400th at Nats Park off Jordan Zimmerman
