Dodgers News: Mookie Betts Gives Fan the Souvenir of a Lifetime on Sunday
Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts has a history of going above and beyond to do the right thing. Betts quietly gives back to the LA community and trades fans in the stands for an opposing outfielder’s first career home run ball. That’s not all Betts does outside the lines, but it’s a window into the character of one of baseball’s greatest ambassadors.
On Sunday, Betts gave a young Dodgers fan dressed head-to-toe in LA All-Star Game gear one of his bats to add to good guy resumé.
Betts is a fierce competitor, but his ability to do the little things for fans and fellow players is what really sets him apart. He took the time to give a fan the memory of a lifetime even with his team going for a sweep over the Padres in a game that was broadcasted nationally on ESPN.
Mookie went 2-for-4 in the game and scored in the bottom of the third to stretch the Dodgers lead over Padres starter Yu Darvish to 2-0.
Thanks to some superb pitching from Tyler Anderson, and a pair of Cody Bellinger home runs, the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Padres to cap off a perfect week on LA’s schedule.
LA kicked off the week with a four-game sweep of the Giants, that included an interesting moment between Mookie and Giants reliever Jarlin García, before posting three W’s against the visiting Padres.
Betts and the Dodgers host the Twins for a pair of interleague games before the team heads out to Kansas City for a three-game weekend series.
