Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has long done heroic deeds in the field, and now the likely-promising MVP of the American League is also an all-star opponent after being identified in a tweet that is a simple act of Patience for Boston's Hunger and Homeless
Hours after Betts and the Red Sox took over a 2-0 series in the World Series on Wednesday, and with temperatures falling overnight into the 1930s, the generous star reportedly supplied Warm meals from food trays to the city's homeless outside the Boston Public Library.
Former Red Sox infielder Lou Merloni, who hosts a broadcast on Boston sports radio WEEI, went to Twitter Thursday to share a photo and show Betts Good Samaritan gesture.
Little Birdie told me incredible story. This was the scene last night at 1am in front of the Boston Library. Trays and trays of food provided homeless people. The man who supplied the food was not looking for attention or praise BUT it deserves it. God bless you, Mookie Betts pic.twitter.com/4Ox7O0edo4

"Little Birdie told me an amazing story." This was the scene yesterday Night Around 1 o'clock in front of the Boston Library, trays and trays of food fed the homeless, the man delivering the food sought neither attention nor praise, BUT deserves it, God bless you, Mookie Betts "
It is Not the first time Betts has done a similar good deed for a hungry stranger. In 2015, he told NESN that he and the catcher Blake Swihart were giving pizza to a homeless New York City boy, an act of kindness Betts had pledged for his subsequent two-home running match against the Yankees.
& # 39; & # 39; Me and Blake Yesterday we had dinner and had (a piece of pizza) left, and he said the night before that he gave it to a homeless person and made two house runs, "Betts said. & # 39; & # 39; So I had a pizza. So I gave it to a homeless person and did two home runs, so maybe pass it on to the next person.
