As a local Clevelander, it pains me to write a celebratory story for the opposing team. But, the show must go on, as they say.
Chicago Cubs outfielder, Ben Zobrist, was awarded Most Valuable Player after defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in extra innings during game seven of the World Series.
In keeping with tradition, Chevrolet, the official sponsor of the MLB, awarded a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition to Zobrist.
“In this historic matchup, Zobrist’s performance on the field truly embodies the same ‘Never Give Up’ spirit that drives the Chevrolet team to innovate every day and that has made us the Most Awarded Automotive Brand two years in a row,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “We are proud to recognize the tremendous efforts of Zobrist with the MVP award and the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition convertible.”
For 16 years, Chevrolet has sponsored the MLB and has helped raise more than $28 million to aid hometown teams over the last 10 years.
We’re tough cookies in Cleveland. There’s always next year.
