1. Kris Bryant of the Cubs Named 2016 National League MVP Greg Oldham

2. Introduction • Since 2014, Greg Oldham of Mundelein, IL, has served as the president of GK Homes, Inc., a company that purchases and renovates distressed houses across Illinois and other Midwestern states. In his free time, Mundelein, IL, resident Greg Oldham enjoys cooking, playing golf, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs. In the wake of a historic season that ended with the Cubs winning their first World Series Championship in 108 years, the team’s fans had even more to celebrate after Kris Bryant was named the 2016 National League MVP. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America, which votes on the award, gave Bryant 29 out of 30 possible first-place votes, making him a nearly unanimous winner.

3. Kris Bryant • Kris Bryant was drafted by the Cubs in 2013 out of the University of San Diego. In over 300 games with the team, the 24-year-old third baseman has maintained a .284 batting average, hit 65 home runs, and drove in 201 RBIs. In 2016, Bryant hit 39 homers, had a .292 batting average, and led the National League with 7.67 wins above replacement (WAR), which is a summary of a player’s total contribution to his team. Bryant is the first Cubs player to take home an MVP win since Sammy Sosa won the award in 1998. Bryant’s teammate, Anthony Rizzo, was also up for the 2016 National League MVP, but the first baseman finished fourth in the voting.
