Blurry photos of players throwing, stories about men being in the best shape of their life and New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes pulling into a parking lot with the coolest car we’ve ever seen. These are the signs that spring training has officially arrived.
The first two have been on display for a week now, but we finally got a glimpse at the final harbinger Monday.
Ah, yes. It’s glorious. Now spring training can officially begin. It has our permission.
Cespedes showing up to camp in a tricked-out ride shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise. He made headlines last year by arriving at Mets camp in a different, more ridiculous vehicle every single day for a week straight. He even showed up riding a dang horse.
With that said, there was some evidence Cespedes would tone things down for spring training this year. He told the New York Post in February that most of his cars had been sold off. Thankfully, he didn’t get rid of all of them.
Even with a limited number of options, we’re guessing Cespedes will still be able to grab our attention this spring. And while he might run out of options sooner this time around, he still has plenty of horses.
