Last night, Boston Red Sox right fielder and leadoff hitter Mookie Betts went 4-4 with a single, a double, a triple, and a home run, becoming the first MLB player to hit for the cycle in the 2018 season. (Seven players did it in 2017, three in 2016.)
Though only 25, Betts is already a three-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner, and he's currently leading the Major Leagues in batting average (.347) and on-base plus slugging (1.103). In other words, he is very good at baseball. Proof below.
