CT Native & Astros' Springer Makes History

New Britain native, World Series MVP and UCONN graduate George Springer of the Houston Astros provided the biggest excitement of Major League Baseball's opening day Thursday.

Springer led off the Astros' game against the Texas Rangers with a home run. It was the second straight year he opened the team's season with a dinger -- something that had never been done in major league history.

The World Champion Astros went on to win the game, 4-to-1...they're also the favorite to win the World Series again this year!
