Mookie Betts Is Immortalized in a Collectible Copper and Silver Coin
On July 2nd 2017 Mookie Betts hit 8 RBIs against the Toronto Blue Jays tying the league record for most RBIs from a leadoff hitter. This accomplishment would probably be mroe noteworthy if Betts hadn't already done it in his previous season, making him one of only two Red Sox players to hit 8 RBIs in one game twice in their careers. The other was Nomar Garciaparra. Betts has also become one of only two active players to achieve this feat along with Seattle Mariner Nelson Cruz.
