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.
