Even in the midst of a tumultuous season in Flushing, the New York Mets had something to cheer about on Monday night. Standout rookie first baseman Pete Alonso emerged victorious in the 2019 T-Mobile Home Run Derby at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. Alonso took down Toronto Blue Jays' rookie Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. in the Finals to wrap up a Home Run Derby that went down in history for a bevy of amazing reasons.

This year's bracket was packed full of star-studded talent, and youthful talent at that. Per Sarah Langs of MLB, this was the youngest crop of eight participants that the event ever saw.
