Pete Alonso received the "I Didn't Know He Was Irish" Award from the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame.

Pete Alonso is the latest recipient of the “I Didn’t Know He Was Irish” Award! Pete received the award from Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame Founder and President Emeritus, Shaun Clancy, prior to the Mets-Rays game at Tropicana Field on Saturday, May 4, 2024! 

Pete told Shaun that he’s visited Ireland several times and his wife is Irish! When asked if he golfs in Ireland, Pete told Shaun that he doesn’t play golf because it messes up his swing!

Our research team has traced Pete’s Irish ancestry back to his Samuel Cavin of County Donegal! Samuel Cavin was born in County Donegal and settled in Pennsylvania. The Cavin surname is derived from the Gaelic, Caomhanach, denoting association with St. Caomhan.
