If you go bowling with Mookie, place no Betts

This is the second time in the last three years that Betts has competed in the World Series of Bowling.

The Red Sox outfielder notched a flawless 300 game on Sunday night at the World Series of Bowling in Reno, Nev.

When he is on the field for the Boston Red Sox, he can swing the bat with the best of them, he can cover massive amounts of ground in the outfield, and he is an integral part of the lineup. It's just one of those things where I have to find a way to adjust.

Going into Sunday, Betts was ranked 156th by the PBA, and was averaging a 204.71 score per game. Besides being a great baseball player, Betts is also quite the bowler as well.

And in the final qualifying round Sunday, Betts showed out with a ideal 300.

We're talking, of course, about Betts' incredible bowling prowess. And he takes it seriously, too. He finished second at the 2017 event while being paired with professional bowler Tommy Jones. He even set a goal for himself: he wanted to finish in the top 150. So attaining perfection in bowling may be easier than in baseball but it's still hard.

Betts previously competed in the World Series of Bowling in 2015 and told the Reno Gazette-Journal he has been a bowler all his life.
