Mets 1B prospect Peter Alonso hit a solo home run on a 103 MPH fastball and Andres Gimenez had two at-bats in Arizona Fall League's Fall Stars game on Saturday.
Alonso, who hit third and was playing in front of new Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen, blasted his long ball at 110 MPH.
Think Peter Alonso is intimidated by 103 & 104 MPH fastballs? The #Mets' No. 2 prospect just turned around this 103 MPH heater at 110 MPH to put his team up 1-0 in the 1st inning of the @MLBazFallLeague Fall Stars Game.

Alonso struck out in his second at-bat before walking and scoring in the sixth inning. He walked for a second time in the seventh inning and came around to score on a three-run homer by Austin Listi.
Gimenez did not start but entered the game in the top of the fifth inning and had two at-bats. He struck out swinging his first time up and flied out to center field in his second at-bat.
Entering Saturday's game, Alonso had a .239 batting average with four doubles, four homers, and 14 RBI in 19 games with Scotsdale. He was 0-for-10 in his last three games, including a three-strikeout performance on Oct. 30.
Gimenez hit .281 with six home runs and 46 RBI in 122 games this past season between Single-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton.
