Welcome to the club, Albert Pujols.
The Los Angeles Angels designated hitter slugged his way into the record books Saturday night against the Minnesota Twins when he clubbed a grand slam for his 600th career home run.
Pujols launched the blast in the fourth inning against former teammate Ervin Santana.
Pujols was the first player since Alex Rodriguez in 2010 to join the 600-home run club, and he was the first ever to hit a grand slam for his 600th homer.
Rodriguez, who now works as an analyst for FOX Sports, congratulated Pujols on his achievement.
Pujols also shared a moment with his wife after his record round-tripper.
Pujols could be the last hitter to eclipse the 600-homer milestone for quite some time. Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera currently is second on the active home runs list with 451 long balls.
