That Complete Animal Pete Alonso Just Hit His 50th Homer
This MLB season has featured all sorts of homer-related hijinks, on both an individual and team level.
However, one dude's put up numbers so filthy that they demand our attention even in this anomaly of a year.
And he's a damn rookie at that.
Let's all enjoy some signature Pete together:
Based on the location of that pitch, dude had no business hitting the ball that far,
And opposite field, no less.
The Reds were just as confused.
Have a listen to the blunt force trauma he put on that baseball:
The bat flip was also a nice touch.
As the graphic in the first clip indicated, the Yankees' Aaron Judge is the only other rookie to ever get halfway to a hundred with his 52 in 2017.
We're thinking Alonso just might catch him.
Like we said.
