Mookie Betts quietly delivered food to homeless after World Series Game 2

After the Red Sox defeated the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series, one of the players still had some work to do off the field.

Hours after the game, outfielder Mookie Betts and his cousin were seen making a late-night food delivery to a few homeless people near Boston Public Library. According to a recent story from WEEI Sports Radio, the two were seen around 1:45 am, in 40-degree weather no less.

Mike Winter, a VIP host for area clubs, told WEEI that he was coming out of a nightclub a few hours after the game when he saw two men in hoodies with about 10 trays of food in a shopping cart.

As Winter got closer he recognized one of the men. It was Mookie Betts.

"I didn’t know who they were at first. They had hoodies on," said Winter. "I walked up and I said, ‘Hello,’ because we have a mutual friend and then all the people from the club came out and he just walked away. No pictures. No nothing."

Former Red Sox infielder Lou Merloni shared a photo from the night, praising Betts for his undercover act of kindness.

"Nowadays people do stuff because they want recognition. He didn’t even want recognition," Winter told WEEI. "He wasn’t being followed by cameras like people do on Instagram. This is just him being himself."
