Peter Alonso’s monster HR in the Futures Game

The cry from Mets fans to call Alonso up to New York is only going to get louder now. He put the U.S. up, 9-6, in the seventh inning, with an absolute moon shot to left. It traveled 415 feet, but that’s not what made it extraordinary. It had an exit velocity of 113.6 mph and a launch angle of 46 degrees, the first time in the Statcast™ era a homer has been tracked with an exit velocity above 113 mph and a launch angle above 40.
