(Anaheim, CA) — Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols is the newest member of the 600 home run club. He connected off Twins pitcher Ervin Santana for a grand slam in the bottom of the fourth inning against Minnesota in Anaheim to reach the milestone on Saturday. Pujols is the ninth player to hit 600 career home runs. He needs just 13 homers to move past Sammy Sosa and Jim Thome for seventh all-time. At 37, he’s also the fourth-youngest player to reach 600. Only Alex Rodriguez, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron reached the mark faster. The next closest active player on the home runs list is Miguel Cabrera with 451.
