NY Met Pete Alonso Shatters Rookie Home Run Mark, Hits 53!

Pete Alonso of the New York Mets stands alone among MLB rookies.

The Mets slugger entered the record books as the all-time leader in homers for a rookie, hitting homer No. 53 which moved Alonso ahead of Aaron Judge for the record.

Alonso threw his arms into the air as the ball disappeared behind the center-field fence and the theme from “The Natural” blared as he rounded the bases. The blast came on a 2-1 pitch from Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz in Alonso’s second at-bat of the night during the final series of the season.

A night earlier Alonso homered to tie the record established by Judge in 2017.
