Pedro Alvarez Homerun Contest
The 2014 Pedro Alvarez home run tracker is back. We will gather GIFs, videos and photoshops to celebrate each and every PedroBomb.
Tonights gifs are courtesy of @PiratesGIF which is a must follow on twitter and be sure to check out the blog too.
4April. Number one: El Toro crushed his first home run of the season off Shelby Miller of the St. Louis Cardinals. The opposite field bomb went an estimated 426 feet.
4April. Number Two: Pedro Alvarez murdered a Shelby Miller changeup. Pedro don’t like the changeup. Don’t like it all and had struggled against it last season. To watch him crush it completely out of PNC Park is awesome. We don’t know what the opposing pitchers are thinking after they see it. Good luck sleeping fellas.
Just watch this El Toro Bomb entirely leave, I mean completely get launched out of PNC Park. There was absolutely no doubt about this one. Man, we could watch this GIF all night long. There was no doubt about this one, as it traveled an estimated 448 feet.
If somehow your drinking problem caused you to miss the 2013 Alvarez Home Run Tracker here is the link for you.
If you look closely at all of those videos from last year, El Toro had just three opposite field homers while piling up 36 bombs to tie for the lead in the National League in 2013.
Alvarez is off to an incredible start. Instead of more cowbell, El Toro just needs more Cardinals.
