Pete Alonso hit another historic home run with the Dove Tail PA20 “Haley’s Comet” Axe bat, the same bat with which he won the HR Derby. The bat is named after Pete’s fiancée, Haley Walsh.
With the gargantuan blast off Atlanta’s Max Fried, the rookie Alonso tied Carlos Beltran and Todd Hundley’s Mets record for HR in a season. Alonso’s 41st measured 451 feet, smashing off the black hitter’s eye right next to the Home Run Apple.
Alonso matched Todd Hundley, who put up 41 in 153 games as the Mets catcher in 1996. Carlos Beltran also hit 41 in 140 games as an outfielder in 2006. Alonso needed just 129 games.
Alonso also wore an incredibly icy custom pair of Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 cleats.
