New Britain Native George Springer Injured During Astros Game in Milwaukee

New Britain native and former UConn Husky George Springer was injured during the Astros game in Milwaukee

Springer, the Astros’ center fielder, was being examined for a head injury after running into the wall in Milwaukee. 

The 2017 World Series MVP was walking around the clubhouse after a 4-2 loss and manager AJ Hinch said Springer was day to day and OK to travel back to Houston with the team. 

Springer was hurt making a catch on a ball hit by Ryan Braun. Springer fell to the ground and grabbed the back of his head after losing his glove. 

Astros personnel attended to him, and after a lengthy delay, Springer sat upright in the cart driven by Miller Park emergency attendants.
