ESPN visits Astros Spring Training camp

A.J. Hinch, Jose Altuve, George Springer, and Dallas Keuchel talk with ESPN's Britt McHenry about this upcoming season.

The Worldwide Leader In Sports visited Astros Training Camp over the weekend. ESPN is normally happy to keep Houston in a black hole or continue to take jabs at the quality of the team, except Houston's own Robert Flores (who is always showing love for H-Town). Britt McHenry sat down with Astros manager A.J. Hinch, second baseman Jose Altuve, outfielder George Springer, and starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel.

A.J. Hinch talked about his clubhouse philosophy and allowing his players to embrace their personalities.

Jose Alutve, who joined the beard movement, spoke about the newest additions to the Astros roster.

George Springer did his best James Dean impression, finding the coolest way to sit in a chair during his interview. He always looked an orange version of the Hulk. Springer talked about his injury last season and returning to action.

Dallas Keuchel talked about his beard and his success from last season.

It's interesting that Springer and Keuchel were put in front of the camera instead of more veteran players like Scott Feldman and Jed Lowrie. But it speaks to these young players growing and taking hold off the team and the national attention.
