Not only did Yasiel Puig not make it out of the first round in his Home Run Derby debut Monday, he went homerless.

It was a disappointing performance as many hoped for Puig to be among the contest’s most prolific hitters. Puig admitted to being nervous being that it was his first time participating, but added he was there to have fun and would hopefully perform better if invited again.

Enjoying himself is exactly what Puig appeared to be doing Tuesday prior to the All-Star Game. Part of the Game’s festivities includes players making their way down the red carpet and standing on a platform. Dee Gordon, Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw walked the same path Puig did, but none appeared to enjoy it as much as the enthusiastic right fielder did.

With all eyes on him, Puig made the most of his opportunity by dancing as a camera circled to catch his every move, via MLB’s Vine account:
