Red Sox OF Mookie Betts bowls flawless 300 in PBA event

Betts bowled a ideal 300 game Sunday night in the World Series of Bowling in Reno, Nev.

Mookie Betts, from the Boston Red Sox, has become one of the best outfielders in all of baseball over the past few seasons. He wasn't just great, either. In bowling, a ideal game is a 300 score, which means you get a strike (and knock down all the pins) in every single frame you bowl.

He was bowling in the fourth and final round of qualifying for the PBA World Championship. At least we all know what Betts will be doing when he retires from running around the baseball diamond.

The result? A flawless game. A PBA spokesperson told ESPN that Betts will rejoin the PBA bowling tour in February.

Betts said that after his first ball he turned around and said he did not expect it to be so many watching him, but said the bowling community was very close. Betts finished his first five games with a 194.4 average and rolled a 169 game - his lowest score of the tournament - in the sixth game before coming back with a 300 that pushed him up 40 places in the standings. Betts bowled in that event a year ago and partnered with Jones to finish in second place.
