One of the most anticipated at-bats this spring training comes from the former AL MVP and the Dodgers’ biggest acquisition of the off-season, Mr. Mookie Betts.
Camelback Ranch — LA’s spring training home — was sold out more than 48 hours before the first pitch and when you add the debut of Mookie Betts in the Dodgers Uniform, you have a day that looks to be as fun filled as you can get.

In his next at bat, Mookie drove one to right, but was caught for another out. With some family in town, Mookie got one more chance to make a contribution in his debut and he didn’t disappoint with a sacrifice fly to score Luke Raley.
After the game, Betts spoke with media about his first game with the club, and how he’s adjusting to representing the Dodgers and playing for the organization.

We also got to talk about where he feels comfortable in the lineup and if he’s understanding how the Dodgers are using data to change the lineups.
What are your thoughts on Mookie’s debut?
