If you’re new to the Pedro Alvarez home run tracker, we gather GIFs, videos, and make photoshops to celebrate each and every Pedro Alvarez Home Run during the season. Check out past HR trackers by clicking on this link from the 2014 Alvarez Home Run Tracker, or the 2013 MLB Post Season (Pedro Season), or even the 2013 season when Alvarez tied for the league lead in homers.

NL Home Run Race:  Alvarez is tied for second with Bryce Harper, Joey Votto, and Freddie Freeman.  Adrian Gonzalez has five homers and Paul Goldschmidt has been hot lately and is tied with Gonzalez for the NL lead.  Meanwhile the Major League leader is Nelson Cruz who has eight bombs as he continues to tear up the AL.

10 April.  Alvarez wasted little time in gathering his second of the 2015 campaign when he crushed this Mike Fiers pitch 431 feet.  His second solo shot of the year gave the Bucs a 4-0 lead.

13 April.  El Toro struck again in the Pirates home opener with a 368 foot line drive off Anibal Sanchez to center field. Look closely and you might be able to spot me in the crowd as I took the picture you see below.

19 April Another day game, another home run for Alvarez.  The homer had a true distance of 421 feet into a stiff, stiff wind.  It would have been tremendous to see how far this ball would have went without the elements at PNC Park. Watch El Toro do his thing off Matt Garza.
