Yoenis Cespedes made plenty of headlines during spring training when he put part of his car collection on display. Oh, and he rode a horse to practice one day. Well, Cespedes has a new mode of transportation and this one is going to require a little manpower.
Cespedes is not done. This is the newest addition to his collection, modeled after the bike he rode in Cuba. #Mets pic.twitter.com/FRmYZFIJ8W— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) March 8, 2016
That isn't just any tricycle. When talking about his car collection, Cespedes mentioned that in Cuba he rode a bicycle and dreamed of what cars he could have with hard work. According to TMZ, a Mets staffer just happened to have a tricycle of the same style so she got it fixed up and customized for Cespedes. Cespedes returned the favor by paying for some custom work on her car.
Don't expect to see Cespedes bicycling to practice, however, as he is instead fully focused on camp after some comments from Mets manager Terry Collins.
Cespedes is taking Terry Collins' "fun time is over" speech to heart. He was planning on riding the tricycle to #Mets camp, but won't now.— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) March 8, 2016
