St Louis Cardinals held a grand farewell ceremony to bid farewell to Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina's Major League career

Albert Pujols, Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwrigth are the three players who will retire after this season. The three players, who may enter the Baseball Hall of Fame, received a tribute this Sunday in the last regular season home game.

As if it had been written in a book, Pujols hit his 702nd career home run in his final career regular season at-bat. This was his 23rd home run of the season in the third inning to tie the game at 4. Pujols is fourth on the all-time home run list behind Babe Ruth (714), Hank Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762).

In the fifth inning, when the score was up 6-5 for the Pirates, the Cardinals manager decided to take out Albert Pujols, Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright from the game to a standing ovation.

Wainwright and Molina are the pitching and catching battery with the most games started in Major League history. The battery was in 328 games together, his entire career on the Cardinals team.

“Thank you for all the sacrifice that you and my father made together with my uncles, that I love all of them,” Molina said in Spanish, addressing his mother, who was present at the stadium. “For teaching me this beautiful sport. For making me a good man, ”she added.

Sunday was the last regular-season game in which Adam Wainwright, Molina and Pujols will appear together. The trio had their first game together on September 11, 2005. Now all three will be in the postseason waiting for their rival after winning the Central Division pennant.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, they are the first trio in MLB history to have their first and last games together more than 6,000 days apart.
