MIAMI -- American League All-Stars Mookie Betts of the Red Sox and Chris Archer of the Rays made the short trip from St. Petersburg, Florida, to Miami for this week's All-Star festivities in style, with Betts apparently flying the plane. Check it out:
A quick search of the World Wide Web shows nothing about Betts having his pilot's license, but apparently he either has it or is working toward it because there he is flying a plane. Or maybe he's just camped out in the co-pilot's seat. Either way, pretty cool.
The Rays and Red Sox finished their first-half slate Sunday at Tropicana Field, with Tampa Bay taking the series finale 5-3. Boston still holds a 3 1/2 game lead over the Rays and Yankees.
