Carlos Gomez Gold Glove Presentation Set for Saturday
Carlos Gomez, the winner of the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award among National League center fielders, will be presented with his Rawlings Gold Glove Award in a pregame ceremony this Saturday at Miller Park. The ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. prior to the Brewers vs. Pirates game (and-Bonus!-it’s part of the 5-County, 5-Day Celebration).
Gomez won the 10th Gold Glove Award in franchise history and became the fifth different Brewer to earn the honor, joining George Scott (first base: 1972-76), Cecil Cooper (first base: 1979-80), Sixto Lezcano (outfield: 1979) and Robin Yount (shortstop: 1982). The Brewers had gone 30 seasons without a Gold Glove winner, which was the longest streak in the 57-year history of the award.
Gomez recorded a career-high 12 assists last season, which trailed only the Mets’ Juan Lagares (14) for the Major League lead among center fielders. He also made five home run-saving catches and did not commit an error over his last 32 games.
We will also be honoring this feat later this month, on Sunday, April 27 with the Carlos Gomez Gold Glove Bobblehead.
Tickets for games at Miller Park can be purchased by visiting the Miller Park Box Office, online at Brewers.com or by calling the Brewers Ticket Office at 414-902-4000 or 1-800-933-7890.
