St. Louis Cardinals legend Albert Pujols added yet another chapter to his storied career this weekend. The 42-year-old future Hall of Famer smashed a pair of home runs against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, becoming just the fourth player in MLB history to reach 700 career homers.

The Cardinals fully understood the magnitude of this moment and celebrated with a heartwarming highlight video posted to the team's Twitter account. Check it out below.

Albert Pujols Tribute

The video was narrated by Emmy-winning actor and die-hard Cardinals fan Jon Hamm. It takes viewers on a walk through Pujols' impact on the Cardinals franchise with a beautiful description of everything he's meant to the team.

Hamm discusses a question that every baseball fans wonders, asking, "At 42, how is it possible [Pujols is] as good as ever? Doing things people have to see to believe. From the first moment to the final moments, you've always been different."

The narration is overlayed with a video of Pujols' best moments. From his World Series championships to his dugout moments with Yadier Molina, interactions with fans and his historic big flies, it captures everything.

Hamm closes out the highlight video, written almost as a "thank you" to Pujols, with a line that will give you chills.

"Few are Hall of Famers. Even fewer define the game. Thank you for coming home. Thank you for showing what it means to be a Cardinal."
