Two weeks after the stunning Game 3 loss and NLDS sweep by the National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks, Dodgers superstar Mookie Betts has finally reemerged online. For several of his Dodgers teammates, the play was to reflect on the season and thank the fans for the support over the grind of 2023 in their first social media posts following the upset.
Let’s just say Mookie went a different route.
Betts posted on Instagram some video of a night out bowling with friends and family.
Betts famously didn’t have a hit this postseason as the Dodger bats overall struggled to get to D-backs pitching. He did, however, put together a regular season for the ages, hitting .307 with a career-high 39 home runs and an NL-best 8.4 bWAR.
Fans would rather see video of Mookie and company preparing for a World Series Game 1 on Friday, but it wasn’t meant to be in 2023.
