The Second Annual Yoenis Cespedes Car Show Is Now Underway
Yoenis Cespedes became legendary last season when he showed up at Mets Spring training every day for a week in a different custom car ... and for some reason, one day on a horse.
It seems the show is back, a bit early this time. Cespedes arrived at Mets practice today in this Polaris Slingshot with white and black and blue trim.

“I don’t care what he drives as long as it gets him here,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “The only thing that matters is what he does on the field, starting Saturday at 1:10 p.m.
“It doesn’t matter to me at all.”
Cespedes had his lowest batting average in four seasons last year at .280, but had 31 homers and 86 RBI for one of his best slugging seasons (.530 SLG). The Mets signed him to a four-year, $110 million deal this past November.
