Before last night’s game, the Phillies honored Albert Pujols with the visiting scoreboard “STL” sign in appreciation of his 22-year career.
Pujols, who entered with 683 home runs, announced in March that he would be retiring after this season.
He went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts.
“It was pretty awesome,” Pujols said.
“It was really nice by the Phillies to honor me like this. It was really special.”
Rhys Hoskins and Phillies great Ryan Howard were Phils reps for the tribute.
