LA Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager is the 2020 World Series MVP
Seager, who hit .400 with two home runs and five RBIs in six games, became one of eight players in MLB history to win LCS and World Series MVP in the same season.
Corey Seager, the World Series MVP, was also the NLCS MVP. His 20 RBI this postseason is one short of the record set by David Freese in 2011.
Moreover, the star is the 8th player to win both LCS and World Series MVP honors.
Seager is the 6th shortstop to win the World Series MVP award, and the first player since Édgar Rentería in 2010 to achieve the feat.
