LOS ANGELES — The 2018 Willie Mays World Series Most Valuable Player, Steve Pearce, was presented with an all-new Chevrolet Silverado LT Trail Boss pickup in recognition of his strong performance at the plate and on the field as the Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series since they broke the “Curse of the Bambino” in 2004.
Pearce hit .333 for the Series (4-for-12) with a 1.167 slugging percentage thanks to three homers and a double. He drove in eight runs and scored five.
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.
“In a matchup of the two best teams in baseball, Steve Pearce’s performance on the field tonight and throughout the World Series truly embodies the same spirit that drives the Chevrolet team to win every day,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “We are proud to recognize Pearce’s tremendous efforts with the Willie Mays World Series MVP award and the all-new Chevrolet Silverado LT Trail Boss pickup.”
