The 2021 World Series gets underway tonight in Houston as the Astros take on the National League champion Atlanta Braves.

Who will be the Series MVP?

Houston’s Jose Altuve and Yordan Alvarez along with Atlanta’s Freddie Freeman are the odds-on favorites to win the award, but that’s the thing about the World Series — there are plenty of non-star players who have been named World Series MVP.

I think you see where we’re going on this Trivia Tuesday. How well can you remember the MVPs of the last 25 World Series?

As always, we’ve given you some background: the year, the player’s team and position. All you have to do is name the player.

Last names only will work. You’ve got eight minutes to complete this quiz. Enjoy the World Series and good luck!
