As the state of Texas begins its recovery after a major winter storm hit the state this past week, several Houston Astros players have once again opened up their hearts and wallets to their city in need of healing.
Alex Bregman will be participating in fundraising efforts with several of his teammates who will distribute water jugs to those in need on Sunday.
Astros Players Step Up For Houston After Winter Storm
Houston Astros beat writer Brian McTaggart is reporting that along with Bregman, Lance McCullers has decided to join in the effort by donating $150,000 to the Houston Food Bank as well as buying 40,000 clean water bottles to help distribute to those in need. Through his foundation, The Lance McCullers Foundation will help other local organizations with water, food and veterinary supplies.
Carlos Correa and his wife launched a fundraiser that will donate 1,000 meals to law enforcement and public employees and helping out families without power, food or shelter.
Once again, the Houston Astros and their star players have shown their true colors and love for the city that supports them. No matter what curveball is thrown their way, the Astros have always shown up.
This is why I have always admired the Astros as an organization, just a bunch of good dudes who love their city who loves them back. That what makes this club special in my opinion; baseball can’t get here soon enough as a much needed distraction.
In closing, my heart goes out to everyone still struggling with power, food loss or lack of shelter. Know that we are thinking of you and we are hoping you can get back on your feet very soon! A big thank you must go to the players and families involved with these efforts; your efforts will never be forgotten!
