WATCH: Mets top prospect Pete Alonso explains why he changed his name

It’s Pete Alonso now—that’s what the Mets prospect wants to be called from here on out. And he explained why after his first Spring Training exhibition game on Saturday afternoon.

Mets PR announced the name change on Thursday, as Alonso joined Yankees Zach Britton who changed his name to Zack this season. Alonso explained that Peter just feels too formal, and he wants to break down that barrier.

“It’s one of those things that everyone calls me Pete in the clubhouse, everyone on the coaching staff,” he said. “Pretty much if anyone sees me out on the street or something like that, everyone calls me Pete. So I just think it’s good to be on a first-name basis like that. It’s more informal. I think I’m very approachable and I think I’m a nice guy. So anyone can call me Pete.”

You know, we normally don’t get this many players to be named later until the trades begin….
