George Springer and fiancee host event for displaced Houstonians, discuss wedding

HOUSTON -- Houston Astros playoff hero and World Series MVP George Springer shared his passion for helping Houstonians, while his fiancee Charlise Castro dished on the couple's hectic schedule of post-World-Series life, at a recent holiday event for a local shelter.

The publicity-shy Springer - he famously avoids social media - made his media rounds yesterday, even showing up to do a hilarious traffic report with our content partner, ABC-13. (The appearance earned some love from J.J. Watt.) Springer seemed almost bashful when he greeted the giddy residents of the Residences of Emancipation, a 295-bed housing community in downtown Houston that serves those displaced by Hurricane Harvey. (The event was sponsored by Megabus, which has gifted more than $30,000 to local Harvey relief.)

The young carolers of Houston Children's Chorus quickly shifted from holiday carols to "Take Me out to the Ballgame," as he addressed the crowd. Springer posed for selfies, signed autographs, and clearly made the season bright for the displaced residents.
