For decades, the only baseball player to record a perfect game in World Series history was Don Larsen. Then, in 2017, the Yankees hurler was joined by then Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (now starring for the LA Dodgers). Wait, what?


Betts never stepped foot on the mound, or threw a pitch, in replicating Larsen’s feat. His perfect game came via a 300 game rolled at the PBA World Series of Bowling IX in Reno, Nevada.

''Bowling has been a part of my life forever, so it isn’t going away. I like to compete, but I also know I need to get better.''

— Mookie Betts

Betts, who was voted the American League’s MVP in 2018, is no newcomer to professional bowling. He also made an appearance at the 2015 World Series of Bowling, and has only gotten better since then.


Betts also attended Chris Paul‘s 2017 Bowl Off event, where he finished with six straight strikes to outlasted the host, Terrell Owens, DJ Khaled and J.T. “Action” Jackson for the win.
