Who else could it be?
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was named MVP of the 2013 World Series Wednesday night following Boston’s 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6.
“This is for you, Boston,” Ortiz said holding the trophy above his head. “You deserve it.”
Ortiz made his case for the award early and often during the series, posting a .688 average (11 for 16) with two home runs, six RBIs, and eight walks. Over one stretch, Ortiz reached base in nine consecutive at bats.
“His performance both on and off the field is something that we’re all very proud of,” said Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig.
