Cy Young Award Winners to Get Championship Belts

Alright…this is downright awesome.

Thursday morning, after naming Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer the Cy Young Award winner for their respective leagues the day before, the official Twitter account of Major League Baseball posted some mock ups of what could be a pretty sweet prize…their own championship belts.

Kershaw's belt features the likeness of the Los Angeles Dodgers ace and the team's logo.  Naturally, Scherzer's is similar, just swap out the "LA" with the Detroit Tigers' old English "D".

But this is where it gets cool.


Yup, you read that right…WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is offering up legit championship belts to both pitchers.  And here, I thought David Ortiz showing up at the Boston Red Sox rolling rally with John Cena's belt was badass.
