For a man with immense talent, Yoenis Cespedes has been well traveled early in his baseball career. Cespedes, who’s been in MLB for five years, has already played for Oakland, Boston, Detroit and the Mets.
Thanks to the Players’ Tribune, we know he feels at home, according to an article published today by Cespedes himself.
“I think there are a lot of things that people do not know about me, and that is okay,” Cespedes writes. “But a lot of people see me arriving at practice in different cars every day, and based on that, they get an idea in their head about the kind of person I am. And I understand why. I do love my cars, and that is what they see. But my cars alone do not determine who I am as a person. I would be just as happy riding a different horse to practice every day. That is closer to who I really am.”
