New York Mets slugger Pete Alonso has taken the league by storm ever since his arrival in 2019, when he put up MVP-caliber numbers, breaking Aaron Judge‘s record for most home runs by a rookie and took home National League Rookie of the Year honors.
Alonso recently commented on his future plans with the Mets organization, stating that he and his family have embraced the city of New York and that he enjoys playing in front of Mets fans.
Alonso also stated that he is open to an extension with the Mets and wants to remain a part of the organization for a long time.

It’s always nice to see a player enjoying where he’s playing.
Alonso really seems to like it in New York, embracing the fans and the city.
And it’s with good reason that Alonso wants to stay.
The team appears to have a bright future and a desire to win a World Series, which should be quite enticing for a player of Alonso’s caliber.
Alonso is sure to garner a large paycheck with his next contract, which is something the Mets and Steve Cohen can surely afford to do.
Alonso is not a free agent until the end of the 2025 season, so there is still some time to work out the details of a potential extension.
But the Mets certainly have the flexibility to pull it off and keep their first baseman around for the long-term.
We’ll see what happens when he enters his contract year in 2025.NEXT: Video Proves Max Scherzer Has Always Been A Friend To Mets Fans
