​Pete Alonso may just be the most exciting young ball player in New York. The ​Mets first baseman only recently made his MLB debut, but he doesn't seem to have missed a step in making the jump to the professional level. Alonso got a hold of a pitch from Adalberto Mejia and sent it over the outfield wall for his ​fourth major league homer

​​The opposite field blast was sent over the right field fence, narrowing the Twins lead over the Mets in the seventh inning. 


Alonso just keeps on giving Queens a reason to smile. Despite the load of talent the Mets acquired during the offseason, Alonso may be the individual with whom fans are most intrigued. And rightfully so.
