Lance McCullers Jr. gave a shout out not just to Astros fans but to his teammates Friday, hours after the team was eliminated from the postseason with a 4-1 loss in Game 5 against the Red Sox.
To my teammates, I love you. You are the most special group of people I have ever been around and you made me want to be a better person, player and teammate. I will never forget the moments we shared together. Thank you for everything. It’s always #SIUEFA SZN ❄️ pic.twitter.com/LiOiUqyHwu— Lance McCullers Jr. (@LMcCullers43) October 19, 2018
McCullers said he's not only proud of his fellow Astros, he wants fans to know they "never go unnoticed or underappreciated."
"Thank you Houston and the Astros fans for everything," the pitcher wrote on his Instagram Stories. "Honored to wear the jersey! Until next time!!!"
Pitcher Dallas Keuchel wrapped it all up in just four words:
I love you, Houston.— Dallas Keuchel (@kidkeuchy) October 19, 2018
