Player Profile: Mookie Betts

I have one card of Mookie Betts, from 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: Outfielder Mookie Betts made his major league debut for the Red Sox in 2014. In 52 games he hit .291 with 5 HR and 18 RBI.

Where he is now: He built on his rookie season with a very solid 2015, hitting .291 with 18 HR and 77 RBI in 145 games.

My memories: I’m usually driving home from the train station around the top of the first of a 7:05 Yankee game. In their series in late September at Yankee Stadium Betts led off the first two games with a double and the third with a single.

Interesting facts: Nephew of former major leaguer Terry Shumpert.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Mook, ahead of Mook, a slang term for a stupid person. There do not appear to be any other prominent Mookie Bettses.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Todd Betts.
