Mookie Betts is a man of many talents.
The Los Angeles Dodgers star is best known for what he can do in the outfield, where he has won six Gold Gloves.
But he can also play a little second base.
That’s something he may have to do a little bit of in the World Baseball Classic and this season for the Dodgers.
And so, during the Dodgers’ spring training exhibition game against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, Betts got a chance to play a little second base before heading off to the WBC to represent Team USA.
All he did was make a fantastic diving play and nab outfielder Andrew Vaughn at second.

There isn’t much that Betts can’t do.
As a matter of fact, second base is one of the things that he can do very well.
Though he’s typically in the outfield, the Dodgers slugger clearly has no issues playing second base and is quite good at it.
The Dodgers can attest to that, having seen the play he made yesterday.
The six-time Gold Glover is no stranger to flashing the leather.
He hasn’t seen much time at second base since the early days of his career with the Boston Red Sox.
But the former MVP appeared to know it like the back of his hand yesterday, even though it is not his regular position.
The nature of this play might even suggest otherwise.
Betts will join players such as Trea Turner, Mike Trout, Pete Alonso, Paul Goldschmidt, Kyle Tucker, and Nolan Arenado on Team USA.NEXT: Mookie Betts Is Making A Notable Switch Friday
