Houston Astros outfielder George Springer did something Sunday that far outweighs anything he’s accomplished on a baseball field. He served as the inspiration for kids with stutters to do an incredibly brave thing.
Springer grew up with a severe stutter that he was able to manage after years of speech therapy. In recent years, Springer has used his platform to help and inspire others dealing with stutters.
Springer hosted his annual bowling event benefitting the Stuttering Association for the Young (SAY) on Sunday. At some point during the event, Springer spoke to the media. Some of the kids saw that, and it led to this unbelievably touching moment.
