The gathering took place at home plate, with Pujols, his wife Deidre, and their son, AJ, on the field, alongside Angels owner Arte Moreno and his wife Carole, and manager Mike Scioscia.
Angels play-by-play broadcaster Victor Rojas began the celebration by introducing Pujols before a pair of slideshows played on the Jumbotron. The first featured the other eight members of the 600-homer club, and the second highlighted several of Pujols' milestone shots.
The Machine was then honored with a commemorative encasement of the historic connection, which included the bat and ball involved. The framed shrine also featured inscriptions of the date and number of each of his career home runs.
