New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left it all on the diamond on Wednesday night - including his diamonds.
The Cuban-born slugger snapped his glitzy diamond necklace during a hard slide into second base in the first inning of the Mets' 7-0 loss to the visiting Atlanta Braves, scattering gems around the infield.
Cespedes hustled into the bag after blooping a ball down the right field line, and second baseman Ozzie Albies jumped over him while receiving a throw from the outfield.

The Mets telecast showed what appeared to be diamonds glistening in the dirt near the bag. A half-inning later, New York second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera and second base umpire Bill Welke stooped around the base, apparently picking up pieces of the necklace.
'Well, the cleanup is underway after Yoenis Cespedes's necklace exploded,' SNY play-by-play man Gary Cohen said. 'Asdrubal Cabrera, who has done everything for this team this year, now doing the housekeeping, as well.'
On Tuesday, Cespedes and his chain had a much better night as the Cuban-born slugger homered and singled twice while his diamond-studded necklace remained perfectly intact
