Now there is one more magical milestone. It’s the one everyone talks about in baseball. The 700 home run club, the most prestigious fraternity in all of baseball.
“We talk about it all the time when he’s not around,” Arenado says. “I mean, 700 home runs? That’s something almost no one has seen. It would be quite special.”
While everyone else is fixated on 700, Pujols will tell you he’s more proud of a number that no one is talking about these days: He has 2,187 career RBI. The only men in history with more RBI are Aaron (2,297) and Ruth (2,214).
