Because I want to be a beacon of light in your lives once in a while, it’s my duty to inform you that Pete Alonso was invited to participate in the 2019 Home Run Derby in Cleveland.

Good for Pete … a reward for his fine season and an acknowledgment that he could absolutely hit one to Akron, which would be good for ratings.
