Pete Alonso goes shirtless after game-winning walk-off walk

Pete Alonso goes shirtless after game-winning walk-off walk Going shirtless has become a walk-off tradition for the New York Mets this season, and it was all started by Pete Alonso. On Friday night, it was Alonso’s turn to go shirtless. © Noah K.

He was asked how it felt to be on the receiving end of having his shirt ripped off.

Alonso ’s rocket landed an estimated 437 feet below the smokestacks in right-center field to put the Mets ahead 5 - 0 . According to Statcast, it had an exit velocity of 108.2 mph. Alonso can now set his sights on Aaron Judge’s rookie home run record of 52 set in 2017.

ALONSO : Alonso used more of the opposite field in his second turn at the plate, but still needed a run with only eight homers on the board when he called Alonso continued finding his most success with liners the other way, setting himself up for an absolutely monstrous 453- foot blast over the trees in

What more is there to say about Pete Alonso? Breaking the New York Mets' single-season home run record seemed like a breeze, as the Polar Bear is now on a quest for MLB's home run crown for 2019 -- not to mention Aaron Judge's rookie record of 52. Well, the Amazins' big bopper inched closer to both feats on Friday night when he tattooed dinger No. 50 of his rookie campaign with a 437-foot bomb to DEEP right center field against the Reds.

It's seriously unfair to possess that much opposite field power. And it appears as though Pete didn't even offer a full swing on the pitch!

Assuming he starts all of them, Alonso now has nine games remaining to scrap together 3 home runs to break Judge's rookie record.

At this rate, we are NOT betting against him.
