Who was the 2021 World Series MVP?
Outfielder Jorge Soler, who was acquired by the Atlanta Braves at the trade deadline last August, was named World Series MVP after the Braves upset the Astros in six games. Soler recorded six hits in 20 at-bats during the Fall Classic, including a towering 3-run home run in the Game 6 clincher at Houston. That was one of his three homers during the series. Soler became just the second Cuban-born player to be named World Series MVP, joining Marlins right-handed pitcher Livan Hernandez in 1997. Soler entered free agency following the World Series and parlayed his success into a three-year deal, $36 million contract with Miami.
