George Springer makes young Astros fan's birthday wish to meet him come true

George Springer makes young Astros fan's birthday wish come true

When Astros rookie George Springer isn't mashing home run balls over 400 feet he's busy making birthday wishes come true.

Matthew Brown decided to celebrate his 14th birthday by coming to the Mariners-Astros game on Wednesday afternoon. Brown devised a plan to meet Springer that included making a great sign and coming down by the Astros dugout before the game.
