Editor’s note: This is the first in a series from Globe staff photographer Stan Grossfeld at Red Sox spring training, explaining the scene around an image he captured.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Mookie Betts is in love. His 3-month-old daughter Kynlee reported to spring training late Monday morning, while Betts was taking batting practice. The Red Sox outfielder immediately rushed over and gave her a kiss.

“I was a little nervous about her coming here,” Betts said. “But not too nervous.”

The sleep-deprived MVP says he is dutifully dealing with “stinky diapers” and has a greater appreciation for his girlfriend Brianna Hammonds and his mother Diana Collins.
