The story behind Mookie Betts’ late-night food delivery to Boston’s homeless

Mike Winter, a VIP host for area clubs, was just coming out of “Storyville” at about 1:45 a.m.—a few hours after the Red Sox’ locked up Game 2 of the World Series—when he saw two men in hoodies executing a unique show of good faith. The pair had about 10 trays of food in a shopping cart which they were distributing to the line of homeless folks who were lined up along Boston Public Library.

As Winter got closer he recognized one of the men: Betts.

“I didn’t know who they were at first. They had hoodies on,” said Winter, who later came to understand the other man was Betts’ cousin. “Next thing I know they are laying out trays of food. Then they’re walking around all of Boston library where there are tons of homeless and telling people there is food around the corner. I walked up and I said, ‘Hello,’ because we have a mutual friend and then all the people from the club came out and he just walked away. No pictures. No nothing. None of the homeless even knew who he was but they were just grateful for what he was doing.”

This is just a really nice gesture.
