Mookie Betts, Other Red Sox Stage Line Drive Contest At Spring Training

The Boston Red Sox didn’t let the fact that only half the team traveled Tuesday stop them from making sure everyone got their competitive juices flowing.

The Red Sox who didn’t make the trip to Tampa, Fla., to take on the New York Yankees practiced at JetBlue Park on Tuesday morning. They managed to play a different type of game in the process.

Outfielders Mookie Betts, Steve Selsky and Rusney Castillo and infielders Josh Rutledge and Deven Marrero put on a line drive contest to entertain the other members of the team who stayed behind.

The Red Sox will be hoping the squad in Tampa makes contact like that, too, when Chris Sale and Co. face the Yankees on Tuesday night.
