Dodgers: Mookie Betts Announces Charity Bowling Event in LA

As you might have heard, Mookie Betts likes bowling, and he’s pretty good at it. He’s also extremely charitable and very active in the community.

In six weeks, Mookie will combine those passions as he hosts his first annual charity bowling tournament through his organization, the 5050 Foundation.

The event will take place at Lucky Strike in downtown Los Angeles from 6pm to 11pm on February 8. The foundation’s website is light on details right now, but it mentions bringing a toy to be entered into a raffle, so it seems at least one of the causes will be to help children in need. As Mookie says in the announcement, more details will be coming soon.

Betts has bowled multiple perfect 300 games, most recently just after his 30th birthday in October. He’s also received MVP votes in seven of his eight full seasons in the big leagues, including a second-place finish in 2020, his first year in L.A., and a fifth-place showing in 2022. Betts also won his sixth Gold Glove and fifth Silver Slugger in 2022, hitting a career-high 35 homers and scoring a league-leading 117 runs.

Betts has ten years left on the 12-year, $365 million extension he signed the day before the delayed start of the 2020 season. He’s already made an impact on the Los Angeles community, and it’s exciting to see his foundation doing more for the community.

Favorite Player: Clayton Kershaw Favorite Moment: Kirk Gibson's homer will always have a place, but Kershaw homer on Opening Day 2013 might be the winner.
