Pujols became the first major leaguer to get his 499th and 500th homers in the same game, connecting twice Tuesday night and driving in five runs in the Los Angeles Angels' 7-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. He's the 26th player in big league history to reach 500.

Drug fueled at-bats since 1999.
Nah...that has been cleaned up lately. This guy seems to be the real deal.
No proof. He’s legit as far as anyone knows. He’s had some injuries though. The problem is all the dirty players before him have made it so 500 HRs aren’t really a big deal anymore.
You’re right. This is a milestone that has really diminished over time.
Albert is a good guy. Total class act. No evidence of any PHDs in his game. He loves his wife completely and adores his children. He donates much in the way of time and money to the community. A gentleman on and off the field. He would have been a star in any era of baseball.
He was a total Reds killer while in St. Louis so I was glad to see him go to the A.L. But, I admire and respect Albert. From everything I’ve seen, he did it with talent and hard work. I salute him.
I saw it on MASN. The Nats fans gave him an ovation, and he has killed the Nats over the years. He looks better running so maybe his legs are finally healthy.
“About three months past his 34th birthday...”
My son and first daughter could name the members by the time they were six. The milestone has lost its meaning.
Albert also attended and spoke at some tea party events with Tony LaRussa. that makes me like him
