Dodgers fan names daughter after Mookie following HR proclamation

Dodgers fan names daughter after Mookie following HR proclamation

A Los Angeles Dodgers fan gave his daughter the middle name Mookie after he told Mookie Betts that he would do so if the superstar outfielder hit a home run during an Aug. 2 game against the Oakland Athletics.

Betts went deep after striking up the conversation with the spectator while he was on deck. The fan then surprised the seven-time All-Star on social media by following through:

Hey @Dodgers @mookiebetts @SportsNetLA a bet is a bet. Meet Francesca Mookie Mancuso

“I turned around and told him, ‘No, don’t do that, man,'” Betts said Tuesday in a video he posted on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter. “‘Your wife wouldn’t like that.'”

One of the coolest moments of ya boy’s entire career! Bro is a man of his word 😂👶🏼 #babymookie

— Mookie Betts (@mookiebetts) August 15, 2023

“I can’t wait to meet Francesca,” Betts added. “That’s going to be my girl.”
