Mookie Betts feeds the homeless

Mookie Betts feeds the homeless

It's World Series time. Boston vs Los Angeles. East coast vs west coast. The Red Sox have won the first two games and making a huge contribution was their all-star right fielder Mookie Betts.

Betts is coming off his best season. He won the batting title by hitting .346. Betts also hit thirty home runs and stole thirty bases. He's the likely Most Valuable Player in the American League and his performance was a huge reason the Red Sox led the majors with 108 wins.

Mookie has continued his great play in the post season. He has gone four for eight in the World Series, including three hits in game two.

How does he celebrate a game two victory? Did he head for a restaurant with his teammates? Did he go to a bar? Maybe a post-game party?

Mookie Betts headed to the Boston Library, where many of the areas homeless community congregate. He brought trays of food to feed them. At 1am, what might be a post game snack for him and his teammates, might be that days only meal for these people who live on the street.

This is far from the first time Betts has stepped up for charity. He's held a bowling tournament/fundraiser in his home state of Tennessee and in Boston. The funds help needy children and their families. He's also involved with the Red Sox charity and the Jimmy Fund which raises money for the fight against cancer.

Game three of the World Series is just a few hours away. Mookie Betts will be in the lineup again as the Red Sox try to win another championship. No matter how it turns out, Mookie Betts has shown us he's a champion.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
