Yoenis Cespedes is doing everything he can to make a good impression at his first spring training with the Mets. First he showed off his collection of outlandish cars, and now he is bringing in some delicious farm-to-table treats for his co-workers.

The New York outfielder came to the clubhouse with a big tray of meatballs for the team Thursday, with the ingredients sourced from his family ranch.

Are you thinking of making a joke about the prize hog Cespedes bought and had butchered earlier this month? Well don’t bother, as the rest of the internet also had the same thought.

The pig looked pretty big when he bought it, so even if those are all-pork meatballs, there is likely still a lot of hog left for the Cespedes family.
