That was the first word to come out of Pete Alonso's mouth when asked about what he had accomplished on Friday night against the Braves.
In the first inning, the Mets' first baseman lined a solo home run to left field. His 52nd home run of the year tied him with Aaron Judge for the most ever hit by a rookie in the history of Major League Baseball.
"When I was rounding the bases, I felt like a little kid, like a seven-year-old kid," said Alonso. "I was just really kind of overcome with pure joy and emotion. I can't think of a happier time in my life playing baseball. That is the ultimate. That is, for me, what dreams are made of. It's unbelievable that it happened. ... I'm just so incredibly happy."
For Alonso, the moment was made even more special because of where it happened-- at Citi Field, in front of the fans who have been cheering his name all season long.
"To (tie) it at home in front of these Mets fans was just so incredibly special, and I hope it was special for them too," Alonso said. "Our fans are just so die-hard and passionate about the team ... It's really cool to know that you can makes someones day just by playing a game. They've been absolutely amazing to me this year, and I can't thank, not just Mets fans, but New York in general, it's been surreal for me, and thank you."
Alonso was also asked about whether or not he's considered his own place in baseball's history, as he continues to put up numbers that are nearly unheard of for a rookie.
"I was a history major in college, so I've got an affinity for that kind of stuff," Alonso said with a smile. "To try to wrap my mind around that ... To think that as a rookie I hit more homers than everyone except for one guy, it's nuts. It's crazy."
Alonso now sits tied with Judge's mark set in 2017. With two games to go, Alonso has a chance to stand alone atop the all-time rookie home run list.
For now, he realized how special it is for New York to have two of the best young power hitters in the game.
"There's nothing wrong with some friendly competition," Alonso said. "I feel like that's really good for the city, and to have good players not just here in Queens but to have good players over there, I feel like its a really good thing and a great thing for the city."
