(USA Today)

Getting rewarded in Major League Baseball is tricky. After he threw a no-hitter for the New York Yankees in 1996, Dwight Gooden said the team gave him a watch. Oh, boy. When players today win games by hitting a home run, the remuneration isn't as nice. They get soaked in Gatorade, creamed with shaving cream or sprayed with non-craft light beer. IF they're lucky.

Caleb Gindl of the Milwaukee Brewers took a powder — literally — after hitting a game-ending home run Sunday against the Marlins. Carlos Gomez covered him in what appeared to be baby powder after Gindl hit his first major league homer. Cough, cough, cough. It looked like the scene in "Shawshank Redemption" when Andy gets deloused.

The first time I laid eyes on Caleb Gindl, I knew he had the potential to win the Brewers some ballgames.

That will be the next step. Powdered sugar, perhaps chocolate syrup and sprinkles. Teammates will make the player of the game his own sundae.
