But last night, Betts rolled a perfect 300 in the final qualifying round of the 2017 World Series of Bowling in Reno Nevada.

But here’s the crazy thing … that was the TENTH perfect game of his bowling career. WHAT?! He did eventually concede that it was the most important one of his bowling career, but still. That’s insane.
According to ESPN, this is Betts second time in the World Series of Bowling, and he’s averaging a 204.71 score through 35 games (156th out of 195 players). It sounds like he’ll likely miss out on the championship, because of a slow start to the tournament. But, hey, at least he’s finishing strong.
In his other professional career, Betts is a 2x All-Star, a Silver Slugger, and a 2x Gold-Glove winning outfielder for the Boston Red Sox. But despite all the awards, he’s been to more bowling World Series than baseball. Life’s weird.
