Carlos Gomez goes on Sports Illustrated cover

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED May 14, 2014

The Milwaukee Brewers' center fielder who leaps outfield walls in a single bound will now grace the cover of one of the world's premier sports magazines.

Carlos Gomez has made a regional cover of Sports Illustrated.

Gomez has been in the news for a number of noteworthy achievements, some dubious, some spectacular, some fun, some meaningful:
-

A fight with the Pittsburgh Pirates that could lead to a suspension


-

Two catches robbing the Cincinnati Reds' Joey Votto of home runs


-

A pink goatee for Mother's Day
