New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes realized the laborious approach that diamonds aren’t eternally.
Cespedes legged out a double in the primary inning of Wednesday’s loss to the Atlanta Braves, and as he was sliding into second base his costly chain got here undone and some of the diamonds scattered throughout the infield.
Cespedes was visibly upset at himself as he threw part of the chain on the bottom. The Mets telecast confirmed the diamonds glistening in the filth.
