Mike Schmidt – Your 1980 World Series MVP

Mike Schmidt was the offensive force behind the 1980 Philadelphia Phillies and their World Series championship.

After an unimpressive series against the Houston Astros in the NLCS, Schmidt took his game to another level when his team faced off against the Kansas City Royals for the World Series.

In the series, Schmidt hit .381 while collecting 8 hits in 21 at-bats.  He was responsible for driving in 7 runs in the 6-game series, while also scoring six times.  Schmidt had a .462 on-base percentage in the match-up and went on to be named as the World Series MVP.
