This year’s most valuable player from the MLB All-Star game got to choose between a 460 HP Corvette Grand Sport and the Chevy Colorado ZR2 truck.
As it so happens, Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners chose the Corvette as his award at Marlins Park in Miami on Tuesday night.
“Robinson Cano 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 Chevrolet VP, Brian Sweeney.
Chevrolet has been the official vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005 and has even donated over 135,000 equipment kits, renovated more than 9,400 parks and positively impacted over 6.7 million boys and girls across the U.S through its Chevrolet Youth Baseball program.
“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,” added Sweeney.
As for the Corvette Grand Sport, Cano’s car of choice, it features heritage-inspired design cues as well as a track-focused chassis and suspension elements. In a straight line, it will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from rest in 3.6 seconds, and do the quarter mile in 11.8 seconds at 118 mph (190 km/h).
