As George Springer rounded the bases for his 5th straight postseason home run, lucky Astros fans in the Crawford boxes got their own gift. Astros fan Eddie Flores told everyone in section 103 that if Springer homered that he would buy everyone beer in the section.
“We bought beer for seven rows straight,” Flores said. “Then, it was back-to-back, so I bought another seven rows worth of beer.”

That’s right, right after Springer smacked a HR, so did American League MVP Jose Altuve. How much did the second round cost Flores?
“About $500,” Flores said.
The story soon went viral after the Astros defeated the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of their ALDS series.
Flores says he’ll be back for Game 2, hopefully ready to give out another $500 worth of beer.
