HOUSTON, Texas - Houston Astros outfielder George Springer joined the Rockets "First Shot" tradition Thursday night with a chance of earning money for charity.
Could he make a free throw for the top prize? Not quite.
Springer's shot hit the rim and dropped away from the basket.
With a miss, the Rockets will donate $1,000 to charity -- instead of $5,000 for a made shot.
Next week, Carlos Correa will participate in the "First Shot" ceremony when the Rockets host the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night at the Toyota Center.
