Markus Lynn “Mookie” Betts (born October 7, 1992) is an American Major League Baseball outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was previously with the Boston Red Sox. In 2018, while with the Red Sox, he became the first player in MLB history to win the Most Valuable Player, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, batting title, and World Series in the same season. Betts batted.548 with 24 steals in his junior year at John Overton High School in Nashville in 2010. Betts signed a letter of intent to attend the University of Tennessee on a baseball scholarship in November of that year, after being recruited by Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After those year, Betts was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2011 and debuted in the major leagues in 2014. In 2018, he won the AL MVP, batting title, and Gold Glove while leading the Red Sox to a World Series championship. Soon after that, Betts and pitcher David Price were traded to the Dodgers in a blockbuster deal that sent three prospects to the Red Sox in 2020. In his first season with the Dodgers, he helped them win their first World Series since 1988.
