Houston, TX - George Springer made his professional baseball debut with the Tri-City ValleyCats in August of 2011. Wednesday night, Houston's former 1st round draft pick out of UConn made his major league debut as the Astros hosted the Royals at Minute Maid Park.
After grounding out his first at bat in the bottom of the 1st inning, Springer got his first MLB hit in the 3rd inning on a well placed swinging bunt that barely traveled a third of the way down the third base line.
