World Series MVP Ben Zobrist Awarded with a Chevy Camaro SS

By Sunrise Chevrolet | November 15th, 2016

Major League Baseball's 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player and Chicago Cubs' Outfielder Ben Zobrist is presented with a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 50th Anniversary EditionIf you bleed Cubbie blue or are a diehard baseball fan, then you were most likely watching Game 7 of the World Series in Cleveland when the Cubs clinched their first world championship since 1908, ending the longest drought in the history of American sports. You also probably saw as Ben Zobrist drove in the “go ahead” RBI in the top of the 10th to start the comeback which would eventually win the game for the team. And if stayed up afterwards to enjoy the festivities, then you also saw Zobrist take away the MVP of the World Series along with a brand new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Special Edition.

About the Chevy Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition

Like other versions of the Chevy Camaro SS, the 50th Anniversary model runs on a beefy 6.2L V8 engine that generates a blistering 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. All of this power gets sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, motivating this American muscle car to move from 0 to 60 mph in just over four seconds.

On the design end of things, the 50th Anniversary Edition announces itself with a variety of unique styling elements, including 20-inch 50th Anniversary wheels, a 50th Anniversary stripe package and exterior badging, and 50th Anniversary treatments inside the cabin on the instrument panel, seatbacks, steering wheel, and illuminated sill plates. These models all features Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior paint, a stylish grille with stain chrome accents, and a body-colored front splitter.

Zobrist’s MVP Legacy

When he signed a four-year, $56 million offer with the Cubs last December, it would have been impossible for Ben Zobrist to predict that he would eventually be in a position in Game 7 to help the Cubs end their century-long (and then some) curse, but that’s exactly what happened last week in Cleveland. At the celebration in Grant Park last Friday, Zobrist was all smiles, and Cubs fans everywhere can smile a big smile knowing they’ve got this guy on their team for the foreseeable future. He might have ridden his bike to games in the past, but we’ve got our bets on him making his way into Wrigleyville in a Camaro SS next year—at least a couple times!
