Milwaukee Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez literally swung out of his helmet on Opening Day
MLB Opening Day is the most wonderful time of the year for many baseball fans. The players undoubtedly enjoy it too. But there remains some rust from the offseason, despite playing about a month of Spring Training contests.
Milwaukee Brewers All-Star centerfielder Carlos Gomez was not in midseason form early in his 2015 debut, though, as he literally swung out of his helmet.
The 29-year-old, 6’3″, 220-pound centerfielder looked like he was trying to impress the fans and his teammates all in one swing on Monday afternoon at Miller Park.

Gomez came up with the Brewers already down big after the Rockies banged around Brewers Opening Day starter Kyle Lohse to the tune of eight runs in 3.1 innings pitched, including four in the season’s first inning.
Perhaps Gomez was hoping that with one swing he could tie the game if it went far enough. Either way, he clearly swung out of his helmet as he chased Rockies starter Kyle Kendricks’ changeup (or sinker) in the dirt.
Gomez has hit 47 home runs the past two seasons, so he has the pop to produce an impressive home run.
