The former gardener from Granma Yoenis Cespedes In addition to his talent, he has transcended for a complex character, which possibly contributed to his farewell from the Major Leagues not being in the best possible way. But with the errors or defects that are part of the lives of human beings without exception, there is also a positive side that in the case of “The Power” has dimensions as large as many of the hits or shots that transcended the most.
While many believe that he is one of their millionaires inside and outside the sport who only thinks of himself, the reality is completely different. Although Céspedes has an opulent life to which he arrived at a clean sacrifice, his most recent actions with the people of his native land is something worthy of recognition and even admiration. Because it is clear that he who can can, but there are not so many who do what he did in his native Campechuela like him.
I clarify that the article is not to make him a saint or because he needs the promotion of these acts, but because I think they are facts that are worth not being unnoticed. Especially when it comes to someone whom a good part of the people criticize for much of the sports and for almost everything of the personal.

There are several who have approached me through the internet to give me details of Yoenis’s actions in his recent trips to his land, in which in addition to buying a farm as he did in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, he has helped financially to a large number of people.
But in addition to that, there was his gesture of contributing to the repair of some affected public spaces and even the firm desire to fix the December 26 stadium in which he trained as a baseball player. On one occasion he filled a bus with gifts to distribute in Licea, a popular council belonging to Campechuela.
Unfortunately, much of the intentions of the double winner of the home run derby in the All Star Game remained in that, since there has been institutional reluctance when it comes to assuming the repair or construction of certain more collective works out of pocket.
Campechuela is a municipality with an enormous baseball tradition and several of the most important baseball players in the Granma province have emerged from there. In addition to Céspedes, the three Bejerano brothers (Pablo, Víctor and Santiago Valerio) could be highlighted in the group.
In the case of the protagonist of this writing, he is the only man from Granma who has reached the Major Leagues in the present century. There he served among 2012 and 2020 with Oakland, Detroit, Boston and the New York Mets.
It is clear that there were many merits of “The Power” in the sports context, but that is in the past that with the dynamics of life and for various other factors, it is increasingly ignored. But these types of social events are never forgotten and acquire a higher significance because life is much more important than sport.
Some of the two sides will criticize him, but perhaps the majority will applaud his voluntary humanism, and from today think a little more when prosecuting Yoenis Céspedes as a person rather than as a player.
