DUAL AUTO POP 1. Pete Alonso: Dave Jauss’s history pitching in the Home Run Derby. I don’t throw hard, but I can close my eyes and hit a spot. With the victory, he became the fourth player to win the Home Run Derby multiple times and the third to go back-to-back. Many people, including Alonso himself, acknowledged the crucial role the man throwing to him played in the victory. His name is Dave Jauss. “Jaussy was putting them right in the bread basket, ” Alonso said afterward. I feel like I used pretty much the entire field. I was locked in on hitting the sweet spot on the bat. My tempo was great and my effort level was outstanding. Jauss began his career in professional baseball as a member of the Montreal Expos organization in 1988. Since then, he has worked for six different teams in a variety of roles. The Mets hired him as their bench coach.
