With a stellar regular season record of 108-54, just about every baseball fan knew that this team was destined for the World Series, but there’s one player who’s still finding time for charity.
As Mookie Betts left the field, after winning the second game of the World Series, he barely celebrated before reminding his team that they need two more wins to claim the title. Betts is always focused on the game, in fact this season he is a shoo-in for the American League MVP, ending the regular season with a .346 batting average, 32 home runs, 80 RBIs, and 30 stolen bases.
