29 AUG 2015: Boston Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts (50) after scoring during the game between the New York Mets and the Boston Red Sox played at Citi Field in Flushing,NY. The Boston Red Sox defeat the New York Mets 3-1.

Mookie Betts is the man, this is a known fact. Lately, the slugger has been on a roll, with a total of five home runs in just two games last week. Only two other Red Sox players have accomplished this feat, and if he keeps it up, he could even top Ted Williams for the most home runs in a year for a guy in a Sox uniform 23 years or younger.

This season just seems to be his, as hitting streaks and homers like these haven’t previously been on his record. In fact, Betts didn’t even clear the fence until his 76th pro game.

Who knows what was going on during the first 75 games, but there’s a chance Mookie could have had his mind on something else… another sport even? You heard right, because Betts might as well be known as a two-sport athlete.

Mookie Betts Bowling Career

In his life, the twenty-three year old has bowled four perfect games. He even competed in the PBA World Series of Bowling, though most of us are not familiar with this particular “World Series”. He’s not quite on the professional level yet, but he bowled six strikes in a row, and definitely didn’t go unnoticed. Check out his perfect form, the skilled flick of the wrist.

Though Mookie Betts probably has his bat in hand at the moment, the bowling ball will always be in the back of his mind, and if anything ever falls through at the plate, there’s always the alley and Professional Bowling Association to back him up.
