ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Albert Pujols says he's not normally an emotional guy, but Friday was different. It was the first time, since the end of the 2011 World Series Championship parade that he stepped foot inside Busch Stadium and he admitted the moment was getting to him. 

This was during his pregame press conference, which was attended by his "little brother," Yadier Molina. The St. Louis Cardinals catcher had just FaceTime called his former teammate of eight years, to tell Pujols he was late for his press conference and everyone was waiting on him.

Then got to share a special moment in the top of the first inning. During Pujols' more than 1-minute standing ovation, Molina couldn't help but hug him.
