Mookie Betts looks like a superhero on the cover of R.B.I. Baseball 16

Boston Red Sox

If you heard Mookie Betts was going to be on the cover of a video game, you'd probably assume it was the next installment in a "superheroes fighting" franchise. Yes, Betts has actual (occasionally nerdy) superpowers. 

But on the Saturday of Red Sox Winter Weekend, Betts revealed that he's on the cover of the new R.B.I Baseball 16:

He might actually be Superman zooming halfway around the world to save a double in the gap: 

Since he's been known to demonstrate video game-esque skills in real life, it's no surprise that his trailer for the game looks incredible:

Betts also has some advice for you (yes, you), if you're an aspiring athlete and hope to see yourself on an R.B.I. game cover someday. 

"Just stay with it. Dreams do come true. Just work hard and let the chips fall where they may," the center fielder told us. 

You can get your very own copy of R.B.I. 16 this spring, available for iPhone, iPad, supported Android smartphones and tablets, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC/Mac (via Steam).
