“My mom was bowling the night I was born” Mookie Betts shares unheard childhood tale as Dodgers star addresses 50/50 Foundation charity event

Dodgers star Mookie Betts has a deep passion for bowling, something he inherited from his mom, Diana Benedict. Betts is also passionate about several other sports, including gaming and golfing. However, the nostalgia from bowling hits is different, as it played an integral part when he was growing up. Betts explained how he began bowling at a young age, much before he considered being a baseball player.

“I don’t know. I have no idea. It was just kind of random. My mom was bowling the night I was born, so maybe that’s what it is" - L.A. Dodgers star Mookie Betts explained to SportsNet LA
"I can’t really say. I mean, my crib was in the bowling alley, anything and everything was bowling from when I was a day old to now. It’s nothing new to me. I can’t really explain it. It’s just a passion that I have.” - Betts added
