After tonight’s win against the Braves in Atlanta, reporters told Alonso that Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton have hit harder home runs than him in the Statcast era.
Alonso responded by saying “I’ve gotta do a couple more pushups.”
His home run was his 6th of the season with an exit velocity of 118.3MPH and was a 454 footer.
Manager Mickey Callaway had some words of his own about the two-run blast, “Most of the time our jaws are dropped and we’re going, ‘Wow.’ He does something special every night. When he’s at the plate, you feel like something’s going to happen. And something usually does.”
