The New York Mets captured their first win of the 2024 baseball season on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers.

Perhaps the franchise can attribute the turn of good fortune to star Pete Alonso's new, and...interesting haircut.

Cameras caught Alonso's new look when he was in the dugout on Thursday during the win over the Tigers.

Alonso hit the game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth on Thursday, his second of the season, to keep the Mets alive. Tyrone Taylor's walk-off single later in the frame clinched the victory for the Tigers.

Alonso's batting average is up to .292 on the season. If he continues his hot hitting, fans can tie it to the haircut. Here are some of the best reactions on social media to Alonso's new look.
