Carlos Gomez crushes long home run, tosses bat, dabs at home plate

Throughout its short history, The Dab has steamrolled through pop culture -- beginning with Migos and fully realizing its true potential with Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (whom Migos dubbed the "Dab Daddy.")

Remember March 28, 2016, fair readers. 'Twas the day MLB's Dab Daddy was born.
