Get ready for the World Series with Yoenis Cespedes' walk-up song about Yoenis Cespedes
Being Yoenis Cespedes is a pretty great thing. You have fire-breathing cars, a rocket arm and unbelievable power. So, if you're Yoenis Cespedes, and you're choosing a walk-up song, it's probably best to just pick one about yourself.
Well, thanks to Mets fan Josefina Sola, that's exactly what he's done. Check out a cleaner version at the Mets Tumblr or listen below:
Ahhhh thanks again for supporting my new single "The Power " La Potencia @ycespedes52 #52 Cespedes , I honestly don't get tired of hearing it as his walk up song .

The song is called "The Power" (the English translation of Cespedes' nickname "La Potencia") and made its debut during Game 3 of the NLDS. According to the New York Daily News, Sola, a Queens native, told the Mets outfielder she wanted to make him a walk-up song after singing the national anthem before a game on Aug. 30:
Cespedes told her to send it to his email and he liked it enough to use it in the postseason. I mean, with lyrics like, "I got the power/you know the name (Cespedes)" and "I love the fame/I like it hot," who wouldn't?
If Mets fans want to download the song and play it on a never-ending loop during Game 1 tonight, Sola is releasing a free full version of the song at 4 p.m.
