Proceeds from the event support Camp SAY, a life-changing summer camp for young people who stutter. Springer is the SAY organization’s national spokesman.
“I understand the position I’m in and if I can help anybody — a kid, an adult, whoever it is — that’s my job, and it’s special to me and I’m glad there’s support for it,” Springer said. “It’s a special day.”
Astros teammates Dallas Keuchel, Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers Jr., Jake Marisnick, Mike Fiers, Alex Bregman, James Hoyt, Dayan Diaz and Francis Martes, along with Astros manager A.J. Hinch, were among those there to support the cause on a star-studded evening.
