The sequel is never better than the original. Following the cult hit success of Yoenis Cespedes: The Showcase, the wonderful folks at Born to Play Sports Management have released a new video, The Encore. It doesn’t quite live up to the high expectations set by the first installment, but is still worth a look.

The Star Wars intro is back. The hip-hop soundtrack is back, but the Cespedes crew apparently learned their lesson from the original release, and removed all lyrics.
