The annual MLB Home Run Derby is set to get underway at 8 p.m. ET tonight on ESPN. New York Mets rookie slugger Pete Alonso is one of the top contenders in the event.
In just his first season in the bigs, Alonso has been an offensive force. He is second in the NL with 30 home runs and has already broken a number of Mets team records.
As the 24-year-old Alonso has risen up the baseball ladder, first as a star at the University of Florida, then in the minors and finally with the Mets, he’s been supported by friends and family, including fiance Haley Renee Walsh.
Here are some recent photos of the pair:
Alonso and Walsh have been together for some time, dating back to his career at Florida.
Alonso was drafted by the Mets in the second round of the 2016 draft.
Below are some more pics of Walsh.
