George Springer relied on determination and baseball to build his confidence after struggling with a stutter. Now, the MLB outfielder is helping others do the same through SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young.
The MLB Players Association recently featured SAY Spokesperson George Springer’s powerful story of courage & resilience.
I totally embrace my stutter - it makes me who I am.
More than 70 million people stutter, including 5% of all young children. George Springer teamed up with SAY and speaks openly about his own journey to spread stuttering awareness and help inspire, encourage, and support children who stutter.
George hosts an annual George Springer Bowling Benefit in support of Camp SAY, our life-changing summer camp for young people who stutter. Proceeds help provide camp scholarships for families-in-need.
