Albert Pujols had himself a fun night at his fifth and final Home Run Derby.
He surprised everybody when he went out there and upset Schwarber, who was the No. 1 seed, to advance to the semifinals.
But before Pujols got his extra minute at the end of the first round, all superstars in attendance from both the American League and National League came and rallied around him, appreciating his run of success.
Jomboy Media tweeted a video of the moment.

All-Stars Show Their Love For Pujols
This is a nice moment.
These stars had nothing but love for Pujols, and it’s great to see them all come out and swarm him, showing their support and appreciation for what he has done for the game of baseball.
He’s helped pave the way for so many great stars and several guys who look up to him as a role model and true ambassador for the game of baseball.
Of course, the expectation by many was that he was not going to advance to the second round, but even if he hadn’t, this moment would have still been the story of the Derby.
Fans in all walks of life will remember the moment where every All-Star present came out and rallied around perhaps the best right-handed hitter the game has ever seen.
What a thrill it must have been for so many of those players to have a chance to show their appreciation for Pujols.
It’s a moment that will live on in baseball history.
