Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes put on a remarkable show en route to winning the Home Run Derby on Monday night, and now the team will let its fans get a taste of the action. According to Jane Lee of MLB.com, Oakland will open the O.co Coliseum gates an hour early on Fridays so fans can see the slugger take batting practice. After digging through the team's schedule, here are the dates you'll be able to go to the park early to watch Lawn's On Fire do his thing: July 26 vs. Angels Aug. 2 vs. Rangers Aug. 16 vs. Indians Aug. 30 vs. Rays Sept. 6 vs. Astros Sept. 20 vs. Twins That's basically every other week starting a week from Friday. Cespedes, 27, outhomered Bryce Harper 9-8 in the Home Run Derby finals at Citi Field. He went deep more times in the first round (17) than any other player did in the first two rounds combined. That includes several hard-to-reach upper-deck shots.
