More On Mookie Betts, Bowler

Rolling Stone spent a day with the 23-year-old Red Sox outfielder:
I have no idea what it is about bowling. It's just a love I have for it. I can't even explain why. Bowling is just fun for me. ..

You focus for each pitch; [in bowling] you focus for 3-4 seconds as you approach and release the ball. Most people don't know about oil patterns and how to play them and transition with them. You have to have sound mechanics to repeat the same delivery each time. That's the hard part. Since I don't bowl all the time I'm not consistent with my mechanics.
