Valentine's Day bummer for Astros
HOUSTON – The Astros play hard, but they love hard, too.
George Springer and Justin Verlander just married their sweethearts. Carlos Correa is newly engaged (who could forget that epic proposal after that World Series Game 7 win?)
So, with spring training getting underway, we wanted to know ... how will the Astros handle Valentine's Day if they are away from their significant others?
KPRC 2 reporter Sophia Beausoleil posed that question to Astros manager A.J. Hinch.
"Part of the love of baseball is dealing with Valentine's Day being a work day most years. So incorporate it the best you can ... I think it's just something every baseball family has to deal with. There will probably be some flowers sent if they're not there. They will probably have some nice dinners down in Florida if they are there," Hinch said.
We know the pitchers and catchers will be in spring training mode on Valentine's Day. That's when they report to West Palm Beach. Monday is the first day for full-squad workouts. But even the Astros who get to stay home in Houston will be pretty busy.
If you've been monitoring their social media posts, many of the players have been working out hard at Minute Maid Park.
