Watch: Mets’ Pete Alonso hits hardest home run of season

Pete Alonso

Pete Alonso is quickly entering star status for the New York Mets and can add a cool honor to his list of accomplishments early this season.

The rookie slugger hit the hardest home run of the season — an absolute laser to center against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night:

The splash hit at SunTrust Park traveled an estimated 454 feet and was tracked at an exit velocity of 118.3 mph, making it the hardest hit of the season.

That was Alonso’s sixth home run of the season. He’s up to 17 RBIs and has an absurd .909 slugging percentage. The Mets must be thrilled they began the season with him in the lineup rather than in the minors due to service time games.
