After hitting his astonishing 50th home run of the year, New York Mets rookie Pete Alonso spoke to reporters about the rare feat. He told the media as they surrounded his locker “For me, I’m just trying to hit a hard line drive somewhere. I’m not trying to ‘dip and rip’… I’m just focused on hitting the ball as hard as I possibly can, stay short, compact and just barrel it up the best I possibly can on the sweet spot.”
The Mets first baseman add, “We gotta focus up and take the series tomorrow.”
I genuinely love how Petey’d rather win ball games over accomplishing individual and personal records or goals.
“I don’t think this is going to truly settle in until the off season”
