Pete (The Polar Bear) Alonso
2019, Pete Alonso started his official Major League rookie season as the First Baseman for the New York Mets. On March 30th, third-base coach Gary DiSarcina gave Alonso the enduring nickname "Polar Bear" for his power. Alonso became the first player in MLB history since 1900 with 11 extra-base hits in his first 10 career games. No other player ever had more than nine. Then on June 22, Alonso hit his 26th home run, breaking the National League record for most home runs by a rookie before the All-Star break, passing Cody Bellinger. The next day, with his 27th home run, he broke the Mets rookie home run record, previously set by Darryl Strawberry in 1983. On July 8, Alonso won the 2019 MLB Home Run Derby, defeating Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 23–22 in the final round, becoming only the second rookie, after Aaron Judge, to win the Derby outright.
Finishing the year with 53 home runs leading all of Major League Baseball for the 2019 season. On November 11, Alonso was awarded the National League Rookie of the Year.
