Tuesday Afterschool Special: Farmer Yo

Cespedes's barn

​In previous installments of this feature, I told you about the exotic cars Mets centerfielder Yoenis Cespedes drove to spring training, including his Alfa Romeo, tricked-out Jeep, and Polaris Slingshot. Well today he showed up to camp on something a little more old school:

This arrival comes just days after Cespedes attended a local county fair and bought a prize pig. Who knows what animal he'll have in tow tomorrow. 

Zuuuuuuuc helps him get a daaaaaaaaate

Tennis ball dogs

Shelter dogs served as the interim ball boys/girls at a Brazil Open exhibition match this week. The four dogs, Frida, Mel, Isabelle and Costela, got the jobs as an attempt to raise awareness for shelter animals. As you can see in the video, the only problem was getting the balls back.
