Yoenis Cespedes Biography
Yoenis Cspedes was born October 18, 1985 and is a Cuban professional baseball outfielder with the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball in the United States. Before joining the Major Leagues, he played in the Cuban National Series and was a member of the Cuba national baseball team. He won the 2013 Home Run Derby.
Cespedes began the 2012 season for the A's at his usual position of center field, but was later moved to left field upon the return of veteran center fielder Coco Crisp. On March 28, in his major league debut, he went 1 for 3, and was also hit by a pitch. The following day, he hit his first major league home run, a 2-run shot off of Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Shawn Kelley. Cespedes had hit his first walk-off home run on June 21 against the Los Angeles Dodgers with the final score of 41, resulting in a three game sweep. The Athletics would go on to win the American League West, with Cspedes batting .316 with a .381 OBP in the postseason.
On July 15, 2013, Cspedes won the 2013 Home Run Derby. A last-minute addition by team captain Robinson Cano to represent the American League squad, he hit 32 home runs total in the exhibition, including 17 in the first round. He defeated the National League's Bryce Harper in the final round by hitting 9 home runs, with five swings to spare. He was the first winner of the contest who had not been selected to that year's All-Star game.
