On Monday, Mookie Betts bid farewell to the Boston Red Sox on his official twitter account. Now it’s certain that an intern or someone close to Betts probably helped with this video.
Whomever that was did a solid job. However one thing makes it unique. Have a look for yourself, because his farewell to Boston seems to broadcast a fair degree of excitement about being a Los Angeles Dodger.
Boston, thank you for an amazing 9 years.

While Betts talks about ‘memories that will last a lifetime’ he leaves behind in Boston, as well as the 2018 World Series banner (ouch), he gives a nod to the future.
“Over the years I have realized we are all part of something bigger then one person, or one city. Though the jersey will change, the mindset will not.”
As Betts video rolls, he shows championship teams from Los Angeles’ sports history past. Some of it includes footage of the 1988 Dodgers and even the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant.
Obviously with every ending, a new beginning of some type starts. For example, this photo was sent to me today.
It’s like looking into an opal. It’s like, I can see my whole life. pic.twitter.com/O4oavS8pNF

Folks, it’s a beautiful thing. It’s so beautiful I never thought I would see something so beautiful with my own two eyes. Already, former general managers have talked about what it would be like to have Betts with Cody Bellinger on the same team.
Until now, it seemed like a dream scenario you could achieve on a video game. Yet it is our reality. I can’t remember the last time I was more excited for a season of Dodgers baseball.
