New York Mets’ star first baseman Pete Alonso gives fans a look into his musical tastes during his warmup on Thursday.
Alonso will be making a huge change for 2020. He posted a video of him warming up and signing to “Hypnotize” by Notorious B.I.G
Alonso has seen a huge positive response to his new walk-up song. Possibly because Alonso has hypnotized new York Mets fans with his powerful swing.
His first walk-up song last season was “Welcome to the Show” by Cody Johnson, a country song that was clearly chosen for its title. Alonso finally achieved his dream; he was called up to the majors.
It didn’t take him long to change walk-up songs. Later in 2019, he switched it up “The Ocean” by Led Zeppelin. A classic rock hit rocked Alonso to the plate for the majority of 2019.
It’ll be interesting to see if Alonso sticks with a walk-up song for the entire season, or if he switches it up again. Switching songs, wouldn’t be unheard of. Alonso’s teammate, Dom Smith, had four different walk-up songs.
It’s usually all about rhythm. If a player is hot then they’ll keep the song going. If they’re cold tend to make a change. It’s just like any other superstitious part of sports.
So what do you think of Alonso’s new walk-up music for 2020?
