Pete Alonso reveals to Carton and Roberts: Where did the 'air hump' celebration come from?


Pete Alonso joined Carton and Roberts on Thursday, allowing Craig and Evan to finally ask the burning question that’s been on their minds since last weekend.

What was up with Alonso’s “humping” celebration up against the dugout railing?

“I stole that from a teammate last year,” Alonso said.

The Mets seemed to take it into their group celebration at the end of wins, forming a circle before coming in for a “group hump,” but as for Alonso’s individual celebration during New York’s wild comeback win over the Rays, it was a one time act.

“I just thought it was wild,” Alonso said. “For me, watching two young kids come up clutch in huge moments for us, that was remarkable. It won’t happen again, but I was just having a good time.”

As for which teammate he got it from, Alonso remained tight-lipped.

“I’ll just say this. he’s no longer with the Mets anymore,” Alonso said. “But he’s a buddy of mine.”
