Without Los Angeles Dodgers baseball for the foreseeable future (the countdown clock’s still completely stuck until further notice), all we have left to look forward to is seeing Dodgers pop up around the city living their everyday lives.

And when those everyday lives happen to intersect with other local playoff runs, all the better.

If not, though, we’ve stalked current Dodgers and alums to various weddings, clocked hospital visits and charity work, and watched Mookie Betts bowl a 300 game like it was nothin‘.

Clearly, that event was just the pregame for this holiday weekend’s showcase, in which Betts joined plenty of other Los Angeles luminaries in a field box for the Rams-Cardinals battle to end Monday night on Wild Card Weekend.

Surrounded by Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Reggie Bush, among others, Betts was absolutely loving every minute of it.

Seems like he took extra pleasure in watching the Cardinals‘ season end in the playoffs in person for the second time in just a few months, huh?

Field box beats being a third-quarter guest on the ManningCast, right?

…Right?

Betts showed up looking like a million bucks, rocking a customized cream jersey (arguably better than the blues the Rams rocked), along with a white hat and shades.

Compare his outfit to the other LA sports stars in attendance (where were the Lakers, btw?), and it’s clear he was the one who heard “football chic” and ran with it the most. Betts’ drip made PG-13 look pedestrian.

(And yes, we’re glad the NFL account tweeted this, because the MLB account currently cannot. Fix yourself.)

The only issue? It’s nearly impossible to get an Uber outside of SoFi Stadium during a regular season contest, let alone the NFL Playoffs.

Crossing our fingers Betts arranged for a ride out of there before kickoff. Otherwise, he might’ve been stranded in the box.
