Cardinals rookie Masyn Winn secured an infield single in the fifth inning, and Alonso made the mistake.

Alonso said first base umpire John Tumpane told him a new ball was needed and threw it into the crowd out of habit.

However, this was no ordinary ball.

Winn had been freshly promoted from Triple-A earlier in the day and had just scored his first major league hit – a significant milestone in any player’s career.

And the special ball was now in the control of a fan.

Alonso spoke after the game and expressed regret.

“I feel terrible. I know it sounds stupid, but it’s just a nasty brain fart.”

“I feel like a bitch. You just lose yourself in the heat of the moment.”

The MLB allstar also said he apologized to Winn at second base and will give him a gift on Saturday and was relieved to hear Winn was able to get the ball back.

“I’m glad he has the ball, but I feel like an idiot.”

“It was utter stupidity and I feel terrible.”

Winn discussed the moment after the game, seemed unfazed and happy to have the ball.

“He apologized on first base, and when he got to second base later, he apologized too.”

“Complete accident. I found it pretty funny. I found it a little more fun, especially after we got the ball back.”

MLB fans weren’t so kind, with many taking to Twitter to express their displeasure with Alonso.

One said, “Pete Alonso is a villain.”

Another suggested: “Pete Alonso threw that kid’s volleyball in the stands on purpose.”
