We as Boston sports fans are extremely lucky. No seriously, we really are! We are fortunate enough to get to experience the greatness that is Mookie Betts playing for the Boston Red Sox.
What He Does on the Field
Mookie Betts was far and away the best player in the American League last season. He took home the MVP award with a .346 average along with 32 homeruns, 80 RBI’s, 30 stolen bases and a 1.078 OPS. Oh, and he also added another Gold Glove and Silver Slugger award to boot.
How About Off of the Field?
But, one thing we don’t appreciate it just how good of an overall athlete he is as a whole.
Take for example this clip of him running a pretty good route at wide receiver.
That looks pretty elite to me. Granted, some of us might not have been happy about the placement of Betts’s foot in this video.
Granted, we don’t need Mookie getting hurt with the season around the corner and a championship needed to be defended. But the route he takes and the double move he performs here is just too good that I have to show it. Plus, don’t forget that Mookie Betts is an avid bowler as well.
Next thing you know, he’ll be trying to pursue an NBA career with his love of basketball still evidently present.
This man can truly do it all. I can’t wait to see what his 2019 season will look like!
