who is playing well, featuring one of blackest Wikipedia
"personal life" sections in all of sports:

"Betts is a nephew of Terry Shumpert, who played parts of 14
seasons with several MLB teams."

"Betts' parents chose his name in part to form the initials
MLB, matching those of Major League Baseball. He has attributed
his nickname Mookie to his parents watching former NBA guard
Mookie Blaylock play basketball shortly after Betts was born."
