Major League Baseball’s Players’ Weekend allows players to get creative, but Mookie Betts really took things to the next level.
The cleats the Boston Red Sox outfielder designed for the weekend were unveiled Friday morning, and they really are nothing short of incredible.

Ortiz currently is back home and continuing to recover after getting shot in early June in the Dominican Republic. The Red Sox, meanwhile, kick off a three-game set with the San Diego Padres beginning Friday night.
