The city of Chicago is still celebrating the Cubs' long overdue World Series championship. A championship parade will be held in the city on Friday but fans are still celebrating with players in town.

World Series MVP and Illinois native, Ben Zobrist was spotted outside his house in Chicago signing autographs for fans.

Zobrist was named World Series MVP after hitting .357 which included the go-ahead RBI in the top of the 10th inning in the Game 7 win over the Indians.

He is also the first Cubs player to win World Series MVP. Chicago won two championships in the early 1900's but no such award was around back then.

The 35-year-old Zobrist also received a new Chevy Camaro SS for winning World Series MVP.
