Albert Pujols hit 204 home runs in Busch Stadium during his eleven-year run as a member of the Cardinals but you’d be hard pressed to say any one of those was as emotional as the 205th home run he hit during Saturday’s matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Angels.

This weekend marks the first visit to St. Louis for the future Hall of Famer since leaving the Cardinals for the Angels following the 2011 season.

Many wondered what the reception was going to be like for Pujols but the stadium and the fans have welcomed him back with open arms after leaving an enduring legacy on the organization and the city.
