Dodgers: Watch Mookie Betts Blow a Kiss to His Mom After Homering on His Bobblehead Night

Monday night was a great chance for Dodgers fans to honor Mookie Betts. The superstar outfielder got his bobblehead night, and he made sure to give back to fans with a really big moment. Mookie launched one into deep left to give them an early 3-0 lead. 

It was Mookie’s first extra-base hit since his return from the injured list after his hip gave him issues. And it was big for the Dodgers just to see him get the bat going on Monday, but there was more to it. 

As Mookie crossed home plate, he blew a kiss to his mom sitting just beyond the netting. The Dodgers outfielder had her in attendance for his big night, and it was special to see

Dodgers fans already love and adore everything about Mookie, but this just added to that. They went on to defeat the Braves by a score of 5-3. But more importantly, they were able to trim the Giants’ lead in the NL West to just 1.5 games.
