Albert Pujols returned to St. Louis for the first time since signing with the Angels back in 2012. The future Hall of Famer was greeted with a standing ovation by Cardinals fans.
Pujols hit a home run in the 7th inning on Saturday and received another standing ovation. After he reached the dugout, he was given a curtain call by his former team’s fans.
It's not every day that you see #STLCards fans request a curtain call after an opposing player's home run. But Albert Pujols is no ordinary opposing player.
