Carlos Gomez chosen as Gold Glove finalist

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Oct 25, 2013

It's been 31 years since a Milwaukee Brewers player was chosen as the best fielder at their position.

Now, center fielder Carlos Gomez could change that history and receive that honor.

Voters have selected him as a Gold Glove finalist at his position in the National League, along with Andrew McCutchen of the PIttsburgh Pirates and Denard Span.

Gomez had 12 assists from the center field position, caught five balls that would have otherwise been home runs and clinched a Brewers win over the Cincinnati Reds with this home run-saving catch.
