Mets rookie sensation Pete Alonso spoke to reporters about making the All-Star team in his rookie season as well as the hard work it took to get to the Majors. Here are a couple of quotes from All-Star 1st Baseman Pete Alonso
“It’s a dream come true, I wouldn’t think in a million years I would be an All-Star as a rookie… It’s crazy. It’s a dream come true.”
“When I found out, I was speechless, just to think I’m one of the best of the world, it’s insane. I was in the minor leagues last year, working hard to get here, I’m really happy that the Mets gave me this opportunity to come up here and start the year… It’s a dream come true to be an All-Star.”
Alonso is poised to do big things this season and with him, the way that it’s going at the moment, the sky is the limit with this kid. Mets fans should be excited and I know that they are, it’s almost impossible not to be.
