PHOENIX (AP) They share a name and a love of baseball, but Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez says his father was always the bigger deal on the diamond back in their native Dominican Republic.
The younger Gomez finally has something over dear ol' dad. That shiny Gold Glove award would probably look nice on the mantle at the Gomez home.
"He's always said, `Oh when I (was) 21, I'm better than you, blah, blah, blah," Gomez said lightheartedly. "Yeah, but I'm the one professional. I'm the one with almost eight years in the big leagues. You never made it."
