Twitter reacts to Albert Pujols’ 500th HR
Albert Pujols became the first major leaguer to hit his 499th and 500th homers in the same game in the Angels’ 7-2 win over the Nationals on Tuesday night, becoming the 26th member of the exclusive 500-home run club.
At 34 years and 96 days old, Pujols is the third youngest player to reach the 500 milestone, behind only Alex Rodriguez and Jimmie Foxx.

Congrats to Albert Pujols on getting #500. He might not be a Cardinal anymore, but he gave me a lot of great memories.
