I told myself I wasn’t going to talk about it, other than send congratulations for a great accomplishment.
500 home runs. That’s something pretty special. But when I saw this tweet from @Dathan7, I got a little sad.
Look at their faces. Albert, stoic as ever. Almost pissed he didn’t get to this milestone last year. Or the year before. The Cardinals fan, happy, but not in a euphoric way. Polite applause for a moment in MLB history.
Everything is captured here.
Albert, who was paid 240 million dollars so that the Angels could ride the wave of these check posts to the Hall of Fame, went ahead and accomplished his first big one on the road. In a National League stadium.
