Festival-goers in St. Louis enjoy the start of fall and the Pujols revelry

ST. LOUIS — Baseball fans are celebrating Albert Pujols’ 700 home run milestone this weekend. You might not find them at Busch Stadium, but they can be found just about anywhere else in the St. Louis area.

Pujols hit his 699th and 700th homers in consecutive at-bats at Dodger Stadium and became only the fourth player in MLB history with 700 homers all-time.

Many fans have been spotted wearing Albert attire or Cardinals gear at fall festivals in the St. Louis area this weekend, including Oktoberfest in St. Charles.

Many people head out in October to enjoy live music, German food and beer. Festival-goers who saw the game on Friday say it was a great experience to see it live.

“It was great,” Cardinals fan Michael Paneitz said of the experience. “I won’t lie, I was a bit tired. I worked yesterday and it was a late game. But when he hit 699, it gave me a jolt. Then 700 an inning later was incredible. I don’t think he made it. He had a tough early year and really turned it around at the All-Star Game and I just loved it.

Many fans even had the opportunity to experience the game on Friday evening or to be informed during the activities at the Oktoberfest.

“When 699 and 700 were hit, my phone alerted me and the band stopped playing to announce this,” said Cardinals fan Austin Bears. “Everyone raised their glasses and cheered very loudly.”

The Cardinals have 10 more games for Pujols to add to his career 700 home runs this season.
