The 2017 Willie Mays World Series Most Valuable Player, George Springer, has been presented with a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Centennial Edition pickup.
It was in recognition of his strong performance on the field as the Houston Astros won the first World Series championship in its franchise history.
Springer, the Astros centerfielder, went 11-for-29 with five home runs and seven RBI. He tied the record for the most home runs in a World Series, a feat achieved by only two other players – Reggie Jackson with the New York Yankees in 1977 and Chase Utley with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009.
A media panel and online fan votes on MLB.com, the club sites and the MLB.com At Bat app helped determine the MVP Award winner. Earlier this year, Major League Baseball honored Hall of Famer Willie Mays by renaming the MVP award in recognition of his many contributions to the game.
Chevrolet has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005
The 2018 Silverado Centennial Edition features design elements inspired by Chevy Trucks throughout history, including a distinctive Centennial Blue paint color and exclusive heritage bowtie emblems and 100-year badges.
