In front of a cheering crowd, he ran up, took a few pitches, and then crushed one to right-center. On Saturday, George Springer, a visitor, made himself at home against his former team, the Houston Astros.

After a scoreless first inning, Springer gave his new team (the Toronto Blue Jays) an early lead. To face his former team, Springer was inserted as the designated hitter and leadoff in the batting order for Toronto, marking his first ever matchup against his draught team.

Forearm injury sustained earlier this week when he was struck in the forearm by a pitch kept him out of his usual centerfield duties.

But he looked good hitting a home run inside MMP against former teammate Jose Urquidy. Springer has five home runs at Minute Maid Park.

Springer, who spent seven seasons with the Astros, missed Friday’s game due to injury.

When Springer returned, there was a party in his honour. Before Friday’s game, the Astros players were all smiles as they embraced their former teammates.

“Always a good time to welcome George back,” the Astros tweeted with a photo of Springer and Bregman.
On May 10, when the ‘Stros visit Minnesota, they may get their first look at fellow former star Carlos Correa.
