Pete Alonso took midnight on Monday, displaying his excited power in winning the Town of Derby Derby. Between his bats and his long balls, many people paid homage to his nickname: the “Polar Bear.”
Funny enough, Mets star earned the label from another Derby Home champion.
“Todd Frazier. In Spring Training, he said look looks like a big polar bear, damn. 'And then it wasn't just kind,' Alonso said to reporters Monday night in Cleveland. “So if anyone knows Todd Frazier, it's a high mouth from Jersey. He tells him how he is. But I love that guy. He is a great collaborator. But he has many characters. It is a clown. But surely he got it from him. ”
Noah Syndergaard was the first person to give the monk arctic to the public, saying “Pete the Polar Bear” after winning the open series Mets ’against the Nationalists.
The nickname after the rookie phenomenon has been followed for most of the season, due to its raw strength and its body shape created 30 domestic runs (Mets roicie record already) and 68 RBI in 89 game.
Before the Mets played the Braves in late June, Jeff McNeil and Dominic Smith gave a polar bear into the dugout to meet with the media, Pete to name.
When asked about his new alias, Alonso said at the time “I accept it.”
