An Admiral Blue Corvette Grand Sport Coupe with the Heritage Package was selected by Robinson Canó as his reward for being named the 2017 Ted Williams All-Star Game’s Most Valuable Player following Monday’s game in Miami. This the first Corvette to be offered to baseball’s annual All-Star game’s MVP since Mike Trout won the award (and a 2015 Corvette Stingray Convertible) in the summer of 2014.
Canó finished the game by going 1-for-2 with home run, RBI and a run scored. His pivotal solo home run at the top of the 10th inning would be the game winner.
As his reward, Canó had his choice between the 460-horsepower Corvette Grand Sport or the trail-ready Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 mid-sized pickup truck.
We think the Seattle Mariner’s 2nd baseman made the right decision!
“Robinson Canó turned in a tremendous performance tonight and is an excellent example to all baseball fans, and especially our kids, that hustle, determination and teamwork are what wins, and that is why Chevrolet is proud to present the MVP award,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
Chevrolet has been the official vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005. The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program has donated over 135,000 equipment kit, renovated more than 9,400 parks and impacted more than 6.7 million boys and girls across the US.
“At Chevrolet, we appreciate the positive effect that playing sports has on our kids and that is why it is so important for our brand and our dealers to support baseball at every level,” said Sweeney.
