Pete Alonso's Monday night began with him getting booed by the Cleveland crowd, but it ended with him hoisting a trophy and getting a chain from Daddy Yankee.
The Mets' rookie slugger had quite the experience winning his first Home Run Derby.
"I never thought I'd get booed in a Home Run Derby, so that was a little different," he told SNY's Andy Martino. "I guess I understand going against the hometown guy and I just wanted to put on the best show I possibly could for the fans. The environment was electric. This was awesome. It's unexplainable."
Alonso outlasted Indians slugger Carlos Santana in the first round and then beat out Braves slugger Ronald Acuña Jr. in the second round. He then had to beat out another crowd favorite, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., to win the Derby.
"It's crazy," Alonso said. "You had two kids who started in Double-A last year and now they're both in the Home Run Derby finals. Crazy what the game is headed towards. I don't know, the sky's the limit right now."
The best part for Alonso, however, might have been getting the chance to do it and celebrate with his cousin, Derek Morgan, who pitched to him Monday night.
"Our chemistry is really good," he said. "Other people have won with their dad or brother, it's just family."
