Boston did not take batting practice before the game, so it gave Betts a chance to go to center and have first base coach Arnie Beyler (not pictured) hit him some balls, including some off the wall as he had a crash course in the angles out there. Here, in pursuit of a ball, he leaps over the barricades that are in center that some fans get to stand behind during batting practice.
