Scaling the Mount Rushmore of Sluggers

ALBERT PUJOLS HITS HIS 700TH HOME RUN IN LOS ANGELES FRIDAY; JOINS BABE RUTH, HANK AARON, BOBBY BONDS ATOP BASEBALL'S LOFTIEST SUMMIT


Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, when asked about Pujols' blast, his second of the game, said Pujols had gained a place "on the Mount Rushmore of Sluggers." In his 22nd and final season, "The Machine" returned to the batting cage for daily hard work. On August 1 the Cardinals were 3 games out of first in the NL Central, and this morning they are up by 6 1/2. In that span Pujols has hit .301 with 14 HR, 34 RBIs, and 17 runs scored. Devoted husband, father of 5, and genuine Sportsman, Pujols insists he will retire after the season ends. "[All] I'm chasing," he insists, "is another ring. That's what I'm chasing for the City of St Louis and for our fans." Here, he hits the 700th HR of his career and 21st of 2022 with 2 outs and 2 on in the top of the 4th Friday night in LA off Dodgers RHP Phil Bickford. After the game, he told the fan who caught the ball to keep it. (Photo: Gary A. Vasquez/USA Today Sports, via Reuters, New York Times)
