Dodgers: Mookie Betts to play character in Disney animated series


Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts has accomplished virtually everything a baseball player can do on the field. He has won multiple World Series, made numerous All-Star teams, won Gold Glove honors, and won the league MVP award. Man can do anything.

And now the Dodger superstar is bringing his talents to Disney. Mookie will be voicing a character in a popular children’s series called Puppy Dog Pals. The Disney Junior series will also feature MLB outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

Betts will play a character named Markus Bestie, a star baseball player in the series. Markus is Mookie’s real first name, so it makes sense. I don’t know much about Disney shows or even kids’ shows for that matter, but Dodgers fans with young children will definitely want to tune in.

The Dodgers outfielder is apparently a huge fan of the show, likely because his daughter Kynlee watches the show. Betts previously wore Puppy Dog Pals themed studs during Players Weekend in 2019.

The episode featuring the Dodgers star is scheduled to air Friday, May 14 at 10 a.m.ET / PT on the Disney Channel. I probably won’t be listening, but feel free to let us know in the comments below if your kids have had a chance to watch!

The Dodgers add even more talent at the minor league level. With so many arm injuries in the organization, they added an RHP in Kevin Quackenbush. He spent the 2019 season with the organization after signing a minor league contract, but never fell for the major league team.
