Yoenis Cespedes put on a show in the Home Run Derby and know fans will get to see him do the same before Friday home games.

Oakland A's fans have been unable to watch slugger Yoenis Cespedes take batting practice all season, but that will change starting on Friday, July 26.

The A's announced that they will "open gates to the O.co Coliseum gates one hour earlier for all remaining Friday home games this season, affording fans the rare opportunity to watch 2013 Home Run Derby champion Yoenis Cespedes take batting practice."

The A's will open their gates at 4:30 p.m. for their July 26th game against the Angels, as well as on Aug. 2, Aug. 16, Aug. 30, Sept. 6 and Sept. 20.
