Bobby Richardson ( 1960 World Series ) is the only receipient who has won the World Series Most Valuable Player Award while playing on the losing team. If you include the Babe Ruth Award variation of the World Series Most Valuable Player then Luis Tiant ( 1975 World Series ) would also be part of the unique "club".

Did you know that 1958 was the first season where each type of World Series Most Valuable Player Award (see Babe Ruth Award ) went to a different player ( Bob Turley here & Elston Howard there) and 1955 was the first season where one player, Johnny Podres of the Brooklyn Dodgers, won both the World Series Most Valuable Player Award and the Babe Ruth Award ?

Did you that when Stephen Strasburg won the World Series Most Valuable Player after the 2019 World Series , he became the first recipient who was also selected first overall in the ( 2009 ) amateur baseball draft , which started in 1965? The highest selection before Strasburg was picked second overall, from the 1966 Draft . Do you know who it was? [ Answer ]

Sandy Koufax and Jack Morris are the only players to win the Babe Ruth Award twice while Bob Gibson , Reggie Jackson and Sandy Koufax (again) are the only players to win the World Series Most Valuable Player Award twice.
