Mookie Betts is heading back to the bowling alley.

The Red Sox outfielder is an avid bowler who has competed in past Professional Bowlers Association contests, and Betts, — fresh off agreeing to a one-year, $27 million deal with Boston to avoid arbitration, will participate in the PBA Hall of Fame Classic in Arlington, Texas, beginning Monday and lasting until Jan. 19.

This is Betts’s first PBA event since the 2017 PBA World Series of Bowling, where he bowled his third career perfect game.

The tournament’s final day will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 at 1 p.m. and the winner gets a $30,000 prize.
