Zobrist, who last played in the major leagues in 2019, is a two-time World Series hero. His RBI in the 10th inning of Game 7 gave the Cubs the lead over the Indians, and the team would hold on for an 8-7 victory and end the 108-year championship drought. He was named World Series Most Valuable Player.
A year earlier, he scored in the 12th inning of Game 5 of the 2015 Series to help the Royals defeat the New York Mets and capture the baseball title for Kansas City.
