It was a good week for Mookie Betts. On Nov. 8 the 25-year-old Red Sox rightfielder won his second straight Gold Glove after posting a .987 fielding percentage and leading all MLB outfielders with 31 runs saved. Four days later, Betts made a splash at the World Series—the World Series of Bowling, that is. In the final qualifying round of the PBA tour event in Reno, Betts rolled his 10th perfect game since he started bowling at age four. That raised his average for the event to 205.6, which ranked 158th out of 188 bowlers. This was his second time at a PBA event—he also competed in 2015. The '10 Tennessee high school bowler of the year, Betts will return to the lanes at least once more this offseason, at the Chris Paul Celebrity Invitational in Houston in February.
