The New York Mets have a pitching staff that commands headlines but they also have Yoenis Céspedes, a Cuban outfielder who is one of the most electric playmakers, both on offense and defense, in baseball. Yo, as he’s affectionately called by the Queens faithful, hits home runs with authority and often shows up to spring training and Citi Field in lavish sports cars. But that is his on-the-field persona and job, away from the city, which he admits isn’t for him, Ces spends his days in the quiet tranquility of his Florida home with friends and family and most importantly, his horses. VICE Sports takes a look inside the life of the slugger outside the bright lights of New York and gives a glimpse at just how much work he puts into his craft, family and farms filled with his beloved animals.

Check out the video above.
