    What a first half for Pete! More long HRs than anyone in MLB, All-star and Home Run Derby participant. I just hope the Derby doesn't ruin his swing.

    If he somehow works in a gator chomp, I’ll flip my bat in style!

    skz—

    I agree, but I don’t think Pete has to change anything about his approach—:)

    He’s got a great HR swing. I just have seen so many guys go into long ball slumps after the Derby. Hope he’s not one.

    Tim Tebow has gotten so much attention as a very mediocre baseball player and Pete Alonso is one of the hottest players in baseball and may be one of UF's best ball players ever. Al Rosen of the Cleveland Indians is my pick. Brad Wlikerson is right there. Go Pete Go Gators, Great boost for Coach Sullivan
