Mookie Betts went 3-for-4 with a double in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night. Then, after the game, he delivered food to the homeless outside the Boston Public Library.
As Rob Bradford’s story about it at WEEI reveals, he did it anonymously, with his cousin, wearing a hoodie, in part it seems, so he would not be recognized. A nearby person did recognize him, however, but when approached Betts just left. No photos, no comments. Just a good deed in the dark. All of this after playing in the biggest game of his life, and just hours before what an early morning flight to Los Angeles for Game 3.
Mookie Betts is almost certainly going to win the MVP Award when it’s announced next month. His value is quite obviously not limited to the baseball diamond.
