Take a Bow

"Albert Pujols #5 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acknowledges the crowd after hitting a two-run home run against the Washington Nationals in the fifth inning at Nationals Park on April 22, 2014 in Washington, DC. The home run home was Albert Pujols' 500th."

There is nothing better than documenting history.

Every day and every game is historic for one reason or another, but milestones in sports make the typical day extraordinary.

On Tuesday night, I had the opportunity to capture for Getty Images, all-star slugger Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim becoming the newest member of the 500 home run club after belting two homers against the Washington Nationals.

A lot of images from the night stand out, but this subtle image not only shows Pujols paying respect to the fans of baseball, but that he was humble, proud in the moment. With adrenaline running, it's incredible that he isn't grinning from ear-to-ear after surpassing a record only 26 before him have done.

That's true sportsmanship during an amazing night of baseball.
