Move over, Aaron Judge.
Pete Alonso has tied baseball's all-time single-season rookie home run record, which Judge set with 52 home runs in 2017.
Alonso blasted his 52nd home run on Friday night at Citi Field, a solo home run off of Dallas Keuchel that hit above the orange line in left field.
The first baseman's 2019 season will go down as one of the most memorable individual campaigns in Mets history. Coming out of Spring Training, it was unclear if the Mets would put Alonso on the big-league roster or keep him in the minors for at least a couple of months to keep an extra year of club control on his contract.
But Alonso did indeed make the team, and he provided a spark for the Mets all season long -- while quickly re-writing the franchise's history books.
In late June, Alonso lifted his 27th home run of the season, passing Darryl Strawberry's Mets' rookie record in just 77 games, and he was just heating up.
On Aug. 27, Alonso ripped his 42nd homer, surpassing the Mets' all-time single-season record, which had been held by both Todd Hundley (1996) and Carlos Beltran (2006).
Earlier in September, Alonso blasted his 49th home run, tying Mark McGwire for the second most home runs ever by a rookie.
Then, last Friday, Alonso lifted No. 50, a majestic shot to right-center field during the Mets' 8-1 win over the Reds. Alonso and Judge are the only rookies in MLB history to hit 50 home runs during their first big-league seasons.
