Carlos Gomez gave up the body trying to snag a foul ball in front of the Rays' dugout

Carlos Gómez's career has been defined by passion. It's evident in the way he plays, it's evident in the way he celebrates, it's evident in the way he vents his frustration, it's evident in the way he apologizes to the water cooler after venting his frustration. Everything he does, he does 110 percent.
Even when he's just hanging out in the dugout during a teammate's at-bat. Another player might have let Ji-Man Choi's foul ball just roll past the Rays' dugout during Monday's matchup with the Indians. Gomez, however, saw an opportunity:

He may not have wound up with the ball, but as Michael Scott once said, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.
