Cespedes shows crazy power in NYC

By Robert Rodriguez - Jul 16, 2013

How crazy is it that the Home Run Derby champion didn't even make the American league All-Star team.

Oakland Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes smashed his way to the home run crown Monday night, becoming the first player not on an All-Star team to take home the crown. The Cuban slugger beat Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round at Citi Field, hitting the winning home run with five swings to go. 

In just his second major league season, the outfielder flipped his bat aside and raised his left arm in triumph when he sent his 32nd homer of the night some 455 feet to center field. He was swarmed by the American League All-Stars near the third base line.
