Remembering Mets History (2019) Pete Alonso Wins the All Star Game HR Derby

Pete Alonso won the 2019 HR Derby in Cleveland the day before the MLB All Star Game. He was the first Met since Darryl Strawberry to win the award (tied with Wally Joyner) in 1986.

In the final round of the HR Derby, Alonso  hit 23 HRs in his final at bats beating out Vlad Guerrero Jr. of the Texas Rangers.

Quotes- Pete Alonso: “It’s crazy to be not just in the Derby, but an All-Star as a rookie. I’m really happy with the impact I’ve had on my team, just trying to help us win. I’m just thankful and blessed. I’m looking to make the most of this and enjoy everything.”
