Mookie Betts has become the first Professional Bowlers Association member to win a baseball World Series title.

Betts and his Boston Red Sox teammates won the World Series with a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night in Game 5, clinching Betts’ first World Series ring.

In 2017 while competing in the PBA World Series of Bowling in Reno, Nevada, Betts bowled his first career PBA 300 game during qualifying for the PBA World Championship. The perfect game made Betts the first Major League Baseball player to bowl a 300 in PBA Tour competition.

Although he spends most of his year focused on his primary sport, Betts has been bowling since he was a kid and still enjoys competing on the PBA level when time allows. In addition to competing in the PBA World Series of Bowling in 2017, he also competed in the event in 2015.

“Bowling has been a part of my life forever, so it isn’t going away,” Betts said in a PBA release. “I like to compete, but I also know I need to get better.”

In addition to taking part in competitive events, Betts also has taken part in the Chris Paul Celebrity Invitational alongside PBA stars Norm Duke, Bill O’Neill, Pete Weber and EJ Tackett as well as other sports celebrities Chris Paul, Terrell Owens and James Harden.

Although Betts isn’t confirmed to bowl any PBA Tour events in 2019 yet, it is possible he may still sign up for one of the early-season events before the baseball season gets going again.
