Editor's note: With his exhilarating and aggressive style of play, Yasiel Puig has become perhaps baseball's most polarizing figure and a lightning rod for criticism. His first year in the majors has been a roller-coaster ride, both on and off the field. Here's a look back at the Year of Yasiel, beginning with the Cuban sensation's magical debut on June 3, 2013.

Yasiel Puig bats leadoff, goes 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and fires a strike from the warning track to Adrian Gonzalez at first base to complete a game-ending double play in his major league debut, a 2-1 Dodgers win over the Padres.

"I'm going to do little things on the field to help the team even when I'm not hitting."

"He's an energetic guy, eager to get on the field, loves the game and always has a smile on his face. We all know he's got a great arm."
-- Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez
