Mookie Betts of the Red Sox has big news to go along with the big hits he gets for Boston.

He and his girlfriend, Brianna Hammonds, are expecting.

Their first baby is due in mid-November, Betts said on Twitter and Instagram.

“This year continues to be good for me!!!” he wrote. “Can’t wait to meet you baby Betts. More life, more blessings!!!”

This year is indeed being good to Betts. His Red Sox are firmly atop the American League East division with the playoffs in their sights, and he (along with teammate J.D. Martinez) is a leading candidate for AL Most Valuable Player.
