'Mookie, wanna play catch?' RF obliges fan ... mid-game!

August 16th, 2022

Moments like this are what make baseball the best.

During Monday’s 4-0 win against the Brewers at American Family Field, a fan brought a sign in the hopes of attracting the attention of Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts. The sign read, “Mookie, wanna play catch?” And with it presented front and center in the right-field seats, it would have been hard for Betts not to take notice.

Betts obliged, warming up before an inning with the fan. And it wasn’t just a few tosses, as Dodgers announcer Joe Davis pointed out they played catch the entire time between innings.

To make things even sweeter, Betts let the fan keep the ball, giving them a souvenir that will remind them of an unforgettable memory.
