Congrats to the Boston Red Sox and World Series MVP Steve Pearce.

The SouthCoast seemed to have a slow start this morning. The combination of a rainy Monday morning and an exciting Sunday night caused all of Red Sox Nation hit the snooze button a second time and join the ever-growing drive-thru line at Dunkin'.

A historic season ended in glory as the Red Sox hoisted up the Commissioner's Trophy in Dodger Stadium. It took a full team effort to have this playoff run end in victory. Dominant pitching from Chris Sale, Joe Kelly and Nathan Eovaldi, iconic outfield performances from Andrew Benintendi, and the ultimate goat-to-glory story arc of David Price. But the most valuable performance came from the most unlikely place, Steve Pearce.

Pearce has played for seven different teams before landing with the Red Sox before the trade deadline this year. He went on to finish the World Series with three home runs, eight runs-batted-in, and one very heavy trophy to show off in his living room.

Pearce has some deep ties to the SouthCoast. The MVP spent his time in the Cape Cod League in 2007, playing for the Cotuit Kettleers. During this time he also went up against his fellow Sox first-baseman Mitch Moreland of the Bourne Braves. Pearce's ties to the SouthCoast also include his father, a Massachusetts native, growing up in the small town of Rehoboth.

Congratulations to the SouthCoast's own Steve Pearce (yes, we're now claiming him) and the Boston Red Sox. Cue the Duck Boats!
