Nothing endears a player to a new fanbase like a monster home run in their first game with the team. Sure, Yoenis Cespedes' grand slam didn't have an impact on the Tigers' chances of returning to the playoffs, but the monster shot showed the Tigers faithful at Joker Marchant Stadium a small fraction of his immense raw talent.

Somehow, there is video.

Here's hoping we see Cespedes round the bases at Comerica Park and other American League ballparks another 25-30 times in 2015.
