Mookie Betts is going to have to get a whole other room at his house for trophies. After winning the World Series with the Dodgers this year, he added another piece of metal to the cabinet tonight.
It was announced that Betts had won the Rawlings Gold Glove Award for right field. It was Mookie’s fifth consecutive award dating back to 2016 playing with the Red Sox. This was his first time winning the Gold Glove in the National League.

The award doesn’t come as much of a surprise to Dodgers fans who have seen Mookie shine in Los Angeles all season long. Since the shortened season kicked off, Mookie provided highlight-reel plays almost on a daily basis patrolling right field.
Betts finished first among all outfielders for defensive runs saved in the National League. He also finished third overall among NL outfielders in UZR rating. The Dodgers certainly saw the difference with him and Cody Bellinger patrolling the outfield in 2020 as the 2 put on a defensive clinic.
Betts was also named as one of the 3 finalists for the National League Most Valuable Player in an MLB Network broadcast on Monday evening.
