HOUSTON — Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg — a San Diego native and former San Diego State Aztec — was named the World Series MVP.
Strasburg attended West Hills High School in Santee and went on to play for SDSU.
The Nationals won their first World Series title Wednesday night with a 6-2 win over the Houston Astros in Game 7.
For the first time in history, out of the four major professional leagues, Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Strasburg are the first players from the same university to be named postseason MVP in the same season. #GoAztecs pic.twitter.com/EyOT7blwDi
