Last week Carlos Gomez incited a fight between his Brewers and the Pirates after some showboating at the plate.
This week Gomez provoked an entirely different emotion from a young fan -- tears of joy.
Together the incidents amount to just another month in the life of the Milwaukee slugger, who is quickly becoming one of the more polarizing stars in MLB.
On the day in which bobbleheads in his likeness were handed at at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Gomez was meeting with fans before the game when a simple hug led a girl to burst into tears.
As we can see in the video below, the girl appears to be holding Gomez's bobblehead when she gets a hug from the man himself. Moments later the tears start falling and Gomez goes in for another embrace.
Gomez, whose 30 hits, five home runs and 13 RBI, are a big reason why the Brewers have the most wins in MLB, has proven himself quite the controversial figure during his time in Milwaukee. He's been involved in several altercations during the past year, including one in September for which he was suspended one game.
But the 28-year-old is also a sparkplug for the Brewers and has helped the team to its best start in more than two decades.
