Since becoming a member of the Houston Astros, Carlos Gomez has committed to working with LULAC in Houston; here in Milwaukee, Martin Maldonado & Wily Peralta will carry the tradition started by Gomez, creating the Pitch & Catch scholarship fund for Latino students in the city.

Nice story about a good man and ballplayer. Sorry that the Brewers could not keep Mr. Gomez. Great role model.
