Red Sox star delivered food to homeless after World Series Game 2 win

BOSTON (CBS) Red Sox star Mookie Betts has received plenty of praise for his play on the field this season. But his action off the field is whats gaining notoriety this time.

Mike Winter, a VIP host for clubs in the city, said he was coming out of a bar at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday, hours after the Red Sox earned a win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series. Winter saw two men in hooded sweatshirts who had a shopping cart with trays of food they were handing out to homeless people outside Boston Public Library.

It turns out the Good Samaritans were Betts and another man. Winter said the act of kindness was done without fanfare no cameras were in the area, and Betts walked off into the night once people began leaving the nearby club.

Its funny because none of the homeless guys knew who he was, Winter said. He deserves the credit. Most people do it because its fake and they want to just put it on Instagram, whatever else. When its a genuine gift, he wasnt looking for a pat on the back. He was in a hoodie just looking like someone from the Pine Street Inn (shelter) dropping off food.

The guy is just an MVP off and on the field, said Avedissian. Hes unbelievable. He doesnt want the praise. Im sure hes probably going to be upset hearing all this stuff going around now. He really didnt want to be in the spotlight.
