Big Meat Pete as they call him in New York went out and hit his 50th home run on Friday night. It was obviously history in many different ways. Here’s video of the historic feat.
Obviously, this game was billed as a pitcher’s duel between Luis Castillo and Jacob deGrom. And through the first two thirds of the game, it was. Then an offensive explosion happened. And Alonso was part of it. We are going to be writing about a lot of Big Pete bombs over the next few years, I feel.
