Pete Alonso's teammates told him to hop in a shopping cart and dragged him into the showers.
"Just poured whatever the hell they could on me," Alonso said with a smile.
That's how the Mets celebrated the promising rookie's first home run coming in a clutch moment.
Alonso hit a mammoth three-run home run to center field in the ninth inning of Monday's 7-3 win over the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park.
"It's still a special occasion for a young player," manager Mickey Callaway said after the game.
One pitch after Amed Rosario's RBI single broke a 3-3 tie, Alonso launched a 444-foot home run to break the game open.
The run support was helpful; even though it wasn't a save situation, Edwin Diaz pitched into and out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the bottom of the ninth.
The 24-year-old Alonso, who crushed 36 home runs at the Double-A and Triple-A levels last season, was 6-for-12 in his first three MLB games with three doubles. But he hadn't had a MLB home run celebration until Monday.

"There's excitement here," Callaway said, "and it should be for a long time. It's pretty neat."
After the game, Alonso said his teammates doused him in everything, from condiments to unedible items.
"A couple of eggs, barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, beer, shaving cream, maybe ketchup and mustard. Maybe relish?" Alonso said.
He added: "That was really cool. I've never had that before."
Perhaps it'll be a more normal event.
