This wasn't the first time that Betts has competed in a Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) event, but it was the first time that he rolled a ideal game in a PBA event. The Boston Red Sox outfielder is a legitimately excellent bowler, so much so that he competed in the 2017 World Series of Bowling in Reno, Nevada, over the weekend.

This isn't his first 300 game.

His prize was $100 plus a $100 bonus. Entering Sunday night, he was averaging a 204.71 score through 35 games and ranked 156th out of 195 players. That's a 10-point improvement from his 2015 World Series of Bowling debut, during which he averaged 190 points per game.

As Betts began racking up strikes en route to the flawless score, he drew attention from several of the experienced bowlers on tour, including Sean Rash and Tommy Jones.

Uber board has struck an agreement to pave way for SoftBank investment
Benchmark has agreed to suspend its lawsuit against Kalanick, and drop it completely once the tender offer goes through. Uber said the investment would be used to fuel the firm's expansion and power further investments in new technology.


Sadly for Mookie, his flawless game wasn't enough to get him into the next round of the World Series of Bowling.

Betts was averaging over 200 through the first three rounds of competition this year before pulling off his flawless game. But just like a true athlete (which Betts most certainly is), he told the announcers during that interview that he knows what he needs to do: keep learning, keep practicing and keep listening to his mentors. Mookie Betts is trying to crack that esteemed list by excelling in a non-traditional sport: Bowling.

Betts, 25, hit.264 with 24 home runs and 102 RBI this season to make his second consecutive All-Star team.
