World Series Most Valuable Player Award
The World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award was originally given by the editors of Sport Magazine and started in 1955. The award is now voted on during the final game of the World Series by a committee of reporters and officials in attendance. It is announced at the game and soon thereafter Chevy presents the winner with a new Corvette.
The World Series Most Valuable Player Award / Babe Ruth Award (variation) was developed by the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America in honor of Babe Ruth and first awarded one year after the Bambino's death. The chapter meets following the World Series and announces their award via the media. This "version" of the World Series Most Valuable Player Award was discontinued after the 2002 World Series making David Eckstein the final recipient.
