Last season, a scuffle broke out when a few Atlanta Braves took exception to Milwaukee Brewers’ Carlos Gomez taking a leisurely trot around the bases after blasting a home run. It was really, really stupid.
But at least it led to this.
After crushing a leadoff homer last night, the speedster showed the Braves just how quickly he could cover the 360 feet if interested.
The not-so-subtle bit of hustle will surely delight both those who believe in unwritten rules and those who find them capricious and arbitrary.
The first-inning sprinting was the beginning of an eventful evening for Gomez. A certified idiot would later try to give him a high-five before being blitzed into next week by Miller Park security.
