Chevrolet Presents MLB All-Star Game MVP With New Corvette Grand Sport

Robinson Canó and new Corvette Grand Sport


Robinson Canó knocked it out of the park during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, scoring the prestigious title of Most Valuable Player. However, that’s not the only award he took home that night! The talented Seattle Mariners second baseman was also the recipient of a brand-new 2018 Corvette Grand Sport, courtesy of Chevrolet.

“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 Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “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."

As the official vehicle sponsor of MLB, it’s customary for Chevrolet to give a new car to the winner of the MVP title. This year, Chevrolet offered a choice between the Colorado ZR2 and the Corvette Grand Sport. However, Canó had his mind made up way before the game even started.

“You know what, to be honest, I almost bought that car three years ago. But I was like, you know what, I’ll get it later. And look at what happened tonight,” said Canó.
