Whereas Betts did not necessarily dabble in football, this latest video he simply posted to social media shows us a young man whose skills aren't limited to the baseball diamond.
Understanding that Betts had already dedicated to Tennessee and was set to obtain a scholarship to play baseball for them, Boston still drafted him the fifth spherical of the 2011 draft with the 172nd overall choose. Betts, Bogaerts, and Bradley also ranked first, second, and thirtieth, respectively, in year-to-year improve in barrels (a Statcast term for balls somebody hit the snot out of”) per batted ball.
In the fall, he is not a baseball player moonlighting on the football subject. Turner had him play a game late that summer season. Betts' trade market is a bit hazy as a result of his extra value projection is within the $25 million-to-$30 million range and the Sox are more likely to shoot higher than hit for a potential return.
