Watch Albert Pujols become 9th MLB player ever to hit 600 home runs

The Los Angeles Angels' Albert Pujols on Saturday became the 9th player in Major League Baseball history to hit 600 career home runs, in a game against the Minnesota Twins. "I'm just glad to be on that list, man," Pujols said. "Whether it was a solo homer, a grand slam, I'm just glad that it happened tonight. It's a pretty special feeling."

The last player to achieve this record was the Twins' Jim Thome in 2011. Other record-holders include the legendary Babe Ruth, Barry Bonds, and Sammy Sosa. Watch Pujols swat his 600th home run below. Bonnie Kristian
