Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts gave back to his community amid the coronavirus pandemic, surprising shoppers at a grocery store in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday. Betts bought groceries for several shoppers and supplied pizza for the essential front-line workers at the Kroger store located in the Bordeaux neighborhood.

Betts maintains a close relationship with his hometown of Nashville; he owns several real estate properties in the city and is one of its most popular athletes. The 2018 AL MVP is currently building a 20,000 square-foot home in Franklin, Tennessee, and graduated from John Overton High School in Nashville in 2011.

Betts’ charitable side has made headlines in the past. While a member of the Boston Red Sox, Betts provided food to the homeless after Game 2 of the 2018 World Series, an act that only garnered publicity when word of his deed spread to the Boston media.

Betts was dealt to the Dodgers in February and is scheduled to hit free agency this winter regardless of whether the 2020 MLB season resumes.
