President of the Dominican Republic praised Albert Pujols for reaching his 700 home runs

Dominican President Luis Abinader praised baseball player Albert Pujols for reaching the historic mark of 700 home runs in the Major Leagues.

Through his Twitter account, the Dominican president highlighted Pujols’ discipline throughout his career, which has allowed him to reach this impressive mark.

He also affirmed that Pujols is a source of Dominican pride for all his triumphs in the Major Leagues.

On Friday, Pujols hit two home runs in the third and fourth inning of the St. Louis Cardinals’ game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which helped him reach the impressive 700 home run mark.

Another impressive mark is the 21 balls he has sent out of the park this season.

Pujols thus became the fourth player to reach 700 or more home runs in the history of the Major Leagues.

The Dominican, who has already announced that he will retire at the end of this season, thus placed his name alongside those of giants such as Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), and Babe Ruth (714), the only three players who, before him, were part of this exclusive club.

More news on Albert Pujols:

After a home run in the third inning that left him just one short of the magical 700 mark, the entire Dodger Stadium crowd in Los Angeles (USA) rose to its feet in the fourth inning in anticipation of what could be a historic moment in Major League Baseball.

Pujols lived up to the expectation, hit the ball out of the park, and celebrated with a huge smile and open arms, running the bases before hugging all his team members.
