Yoenis Cespedes knows how to party.
The flashy slugger stole the show Monday night by launching a walk-off home run in the 10th inning to propel the New York Mets to a 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins at Citi Field. The homer — Cespedes’ 27th of the season — told only half the story, though, as he punctuated the game-winning blast with a magnificent bat flip.
If that wasn’t enough, Mets teammate Jose Reyes slapped another exclamation point on the moment by tossing a bubble gum bucket crown on Cespedes’ head amid the Big Apple celebration.
Something tells me Goose Gossage wouldn’t approve of the bat flip, but it appears Cespedes is hell-bent on making baseball fun again.
