Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts isn’t just one of the best baseball players on the planet. He’s also a very talented bowler. The Red Sox announced on Sunday evening that Betts bowled a 300 — a perfect game — in the PBA World Series of Bowling IX. The PBA has video showing his ninth and 10th frames:
For the uninitiated, a perfect game in bowling requires the bowler to record a strike in every frame. A strike counts as 10 pins whatever pins fall in the next two frames for a maximum of 30. In the 10th frame, a bowler can record as many as three strikes as opposed to the one in each of the first nine frames. So, Betts rolled 12 consecutive strikes in that particular game.
This was not the first perfect game of Betts’ career. He also rolled a 300 on January 27, 2013 and on February 2, 2016. It was, however, his first in a PBA competition. It was not the first time Betts has competed in the PBA, as he competed in 2015.
