Pete Alonso Safely Decided Controversial Home Call: Best Tweets, Memes

New York Mets star Pete Alonso was initially ruled out by Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud after a day at home plate. Instead, the Mets challenged the game and Alonso was called safe.

What makes a rivalry game so much more intense? How about a controversial call? That’s exactly what happened during the August 6 game between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves.

At the end of the sixth inning, Mets outfielder Mark Canha hit a grounder to Braves third baseman Austin Riley, who then threw it to catcher Travis d’Arnaud. Mets star Pete Alonso was on his way to home plate and collided with d’Arnaud and was called out in the process.

Alonso stated he was safe and manager Buck Showalter decided to challenge the game. After a review, the umpires tipped it over and safely named Alonso, giving the Mets a 4-0 lead.

Twitter Responds to Controversial Call in Mets-Braves Game

In the case of a controversial call at a baseball game, Twitter users will have differing opinions. That was exactly the case as many said Alonso was safe while others believed he was out.

Alonso was, well, understandably elated to be New York’s fourth run of the game after the overturned call. Like all of Citi Field.

Meanwhile, d’Arnaud was checked by the team’s training staff after the collision and eventually had to be taken back to the clubhouse. He was replaced in the game by William Contreras.

Do you agree with the decision to lift the call? Or do you think Alonso should have been called after the review? Pete Alonso Safely Decided Controversial Home Call: Best Tweets, Memes
