Chicago Cubs MVP-Winner Ben Zobrist Wins a 2017 Camaro SS Convertible

The Chicago Cubs won baseball’s World Series earlier this week and in being named the MVP, Cubs’ outfielder Ben Zobrist drove home in a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition Convertible.

The Chicago Cubs last won the World Series back in 1908, so when the team headed into the 2016 World Series, they were facing one of the longest and most infamous streaks of years without a championship in any of the four “major sports” in the US. In the 10th inning of what was an excellent game 7, the Chicago Cubs secured their win, ending the 108 year streak of the Windy City team going without a championship title.

Ben Zobrist played a big role in the Cubs’ success all season and throughout the 2016 playoffs, but it was hit RBI double in the top of the 10th inning in the 7th game of the World Series which will forever be immortalized in the minds of baseball fans – scoring Albert Almora Jr and putting the Cubs ahead for good.

“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 being named the 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player, Ben Zobrist was given a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition Convertible, so in addition to helping the Cubs break the 108-year curse and securing his second World Series win, Zobrist also went home with one beautiful modern muscle car.
