In 2018 he became the first player in Major League history to win the Most Valuable Player, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, batting title, and World Series in the same season.
The Silver Slugger Award is awarded annually to the best offensive player at each position in both the American League and the National League, as determined by the coaches and managers of Major League Baseball.
The World Series is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball in North America, contested since 1903 between the American League champion team and the National League champion team.
Betts was drafted by the Red Sox in 2011, and made his MLB debut in the 2014 season, sharing time between second base and the outfield.
In baseball and softball, second baseman is a fielding position in the infield, between third and first base.
He became the Red Sox starting center fielder in 2014, before moving to right field in 2016.
A center fielder, abbreviated CF, is the outfielder in baseball who plays defense in center field – the baseball fielding position between left field and right field.
As a relatively short natural second baseman with a high contact rate and a high level of production when pulling the ball, Betts has been compared to fellow Red Sox player Dustin Pedroia.
Betts is also a professional bowler for the Professional Bowlers Association.
The Professional Bowlers Association is the major sanctioning body for the sport of professional ten-pin bowling in the United States.
