The 700 Club: Baseball world celebrates Pujols' historic home run

Watch as St. Louis Cardinals designated hitter Albert Pujols hits the 700th home run of his storied MLB career while facing the Los Angeles Dodgers and joins Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Babe Ruth as the only other players to reach the historic mark.

On a night many were expecting Aaron Judge to make baseball history, Albert Pujols stole the show.

The St. Louis Cardinals legend became just the fourth player in Major League Baseball to reach the 700-homer mark over his career, hitting a pair of balls over the wall in his first two at-bats against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Friday.

The historic achievement by the former 13th-round draft pick came just after Judge went homerless for the third night in a row, keeping the New York Yankees star one away from tying Roger Maris' single-season American League record of 61.

Here's a look at some of the reaction on Twitter after Pujols' unforgettable achievement.
