Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto believes that winning the Fall Classic during a shortened 2020 campaign would be special amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I feel very strongly that any team that wins the World Series, even in an abbreviated season, will get full credit and will be able to enjoy it," Votto said Friday, according to Jayson Stark of The Athletic. "And I'll be honest with you. The more I think about winning the World Series this year, I think it's freaking worth more."
