Betty was selected by the Mets in the first round of the 2019 draft. After a brief experience of the big leagues last year, he has established himself as the main third baseman this season.
Meanwhile, ‘pink’ on Mother’s Day in Major League Baseball contains the meaning of support for the breast cancer awareness campaign that started in 2006.
At first, only the bat used pink, but it has since expanded to uniforms and other equipment. Now it has even gone as far as a letter to her mother.
