Mookie Betts Newsbeat

The Baseball-Bowling Connection!

Peas and carrots. Burt and Ernie. Beer and sportswriters. Baseball and bowling.

Baseball and bowling? Baseball and bowling!

[Mookie] Betts has competed in PBA-sanctioned bowling tournaments, making him the only two-sport star currently active on a major league roster. It might not be Bo Jackson tearing out of the backfield, but it’s not nothin’

When the Baseball Hall of Fame phoned Boudreau to tell him he’d been elected, his wife had to take the call—Lou was out bowling.

Deadspin: Here’s a reminder that Mookie Betts is legitimately great at bowling

Mookie Betts is awesome and the Truth.

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has never made a secret of his love of bowling—he’s said that he watches the game every Sunday when he can, he competed in the 2015 World Series of Bowling and he’s bowled two perfect games in the past four years. The guy has a profile on the U.S. Bowling Congress website.

So it’s not exactly surprising that he won last night’s All-Star Celebrity Clash at Chris Paul’s charity bowling tournament. And he managed to look cool as hell doing it. This smooth turn and stroll after his sixth straight strike is more or less the bowling equivalent to a bat flip after a huge dinger:

Also, this is clearly a better spring training activity for him than driving a golf cart.
