It seems New York Mets star Yoenis Cespedes took Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscars speech about global warming to heart as he ditched his gas-guzzling, but really cool, cars for a more eco-friendly ride to Mets camp.
On Tuesday the outfielder arrived at Mets camp on horseback while wearing full cowboy attire.

Cespedes isn’t the first athlete to make a spectacle of his rides to training camp, though.
Former Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne is famous for his entrances.
In 2009, Wayne came to Colts training camp with a dump truck wearing a hard hat that read “Wayne’s Construction.”
Wayne outdid himself in 2014 when he arrived to camp in the backseat of an IndyCar driven by professional racer Ed Carpenter.
However, the award for best training camp entrance has to go Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long, who pulled up to Bears training camp in a Big Wheel.

Let’s hope more athletes make “interesting” entrances to training camp.
