Justin Verlander finally earned his elusive World Series ring.
After 12-plus seasons with the Tigers, Verlander was traded to the Astros just before the August 31 waiver trade deadline, and he was lights out in an Astros uniform.
Verlander became a six-time All-Star, 2011 AL Cy Young award winner and the 2011 AL MVP with the Tigers, and his former team congratulated him on his long-overdue title.
For someone who has earned several honors over his career, we know this one is special. Congrats @JustinVerlander.
