Regardless of whether you're a Red Sox fan or not, this is an amazing story. Mookie has another MVP-esque night in Game 2 of the World Series which finished nearly at midnight. Instead of celebrating another great win, or even just going home to get some well-deserved rest, Mookie puts on some regular street clothes and hands out food to homeless people at 1am in the morning. No pics, no press, just doing a good thing for others even when you're playing lights out on the biggest stage of your chosen field.

Mookie Betts delivered food to Boston’s homeless after Game 2 of the World Series: Hours after helping the Red Sox gain a 2-0 series lead over the Dodgers, Mookie Betts was delivering food to the homeless near the Boston Public Library.
WEEI’s Rob Bradford spoke to Mike Winter, a Bostonian who was exiting Storyville, a nearby club, when Betts was delivering food at approximately 1:45 a.m.
“No pictures. No nothing,” said Winter. “None of the homeless even knew who he was but they were just grateful for what he was doing.”
Betts and his cousin delivered 10 trays of food. It’s not the first time the Red Sox superstar has done something like this. What stuck out in Winter’s mind was that Betts, who was wearing a hoodie, avoided the spotlight.
“He wasn’t out looking for any recognition all,” Winter told Bradford. “A lot of people are looking for a pat on the back and he wasn’t looking for that whatsoever. He was incognito just trying to do good.”
