Justin Maxwell has a personal fan club

 

In case it wasn't obvious, Drake Shrader, Chris Rico and Josh Harding have picked their favorite Astros player -- outfielder Justin Maxwell.
 
"He's a beast," Shrader said. "He never misses the ball. He hasn't been hitting great lately, but  hopefully he'll be hitting better soon."
 
The trio has been tweeting with Maxwell, and told him they would be at Minute Maid Park on Saturday to cheer him on.

"He made a play Thursday night that was pretty awesome," Shrader said. "It was kind of a [sliding catch], and we were like 'Woo!' and then he [tipped his hat at us]."

Looks like Maxwell's cheering section is making its mark.
