The Home Run Derby is one of the most exciting aspects of baseball's midsummer classic.
Fans flock to the ballpark in hopes of being one of the few that get to catch a ball.
For the lucky fans that do catch a ball, it's something they cherish forever. For most, there's immediate excitement and then they get back to enjoying the festivities.
However, there are some who don't know how to contain themselves. And I'm not talking about the kids.
This Mets fan caught Yoenis Cespedes' 16th home run of the first round. Cespedes hit one more home run in the first round, which was good enough to get him through to the finals as well.
Now don't get me wrong, if this was a kid, this is a reaction I would expect.
But I'm not going to knock this fan. He was excited about catching a baseball and there is nothing wrong with that.
Cespedes gave the fans a show in the first round, so it's only right that a fan returned the favor.
And it's not as if this was the first time Cespedes showed off his power. He's known for putting on a display in batting practice.
He crushed a lot of pitches from third-base coach Mike Gallego, who’ll pitch to him in the derby, some reaching destinations that are out of reach for other ballplayers.
In the end, the fans got a show, led by Cespedes' first-round total. And that's all MLB could ask for.
