The party brought together the immortals of Cooperstown, Juan Marichal and Pedro Martínez; Sandy Alcántara, this year’s National League Cy Young; Juan Soto, Luis Castillo, Robinson Canó, Cristian Javier and Bryan Abreu, as well as Nelson Cruz and Starling Marte.

Placido Polanco. who hosted Pujols in 2000 when he was called up by the St. Louis Cardinals, introduced the now-retired player.

Carlos Peguero won the Home Run Derby, beating Sander Pimentel 4-3 in the final. In the Celebriades Game, in which entertainment figures participated, Team Gómez beat Team Encarnación.

The tribute, which had the motto “The four we are all the five”, raised funds for the Pedro Martínez and Nelson Cruz foundations.
