First baseman Albert Pujols makes history for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Pujols’ performance on Sunday, homerun twice against the Milwaukee Brewers, is just one example of the heat the 42-year-old has brought.

Pujols is fifth on the career homer list in MLB history and has had 10 home runs and 30 RBIs in what he has said is his last season.

“I’ve had good swings all year,” Pujols said after Sunday’s win. “Sometimes you get breaks. Sometimes you are not.”

With much of the season to go, Pujols has plenty of time to make it to the 700 homerun club. Here’s everything you need to know about some of the MLB’s best home run hitters:
