Carlos Correa, a former first overall draft pick, has been one of Major League Baseball's rising stars since joining the Houston Astros in 2015. He captured the American League Rookie of the Year Award that season, after making his debut at the tender age of 20. He turned 21 during his rookie campaign, when he became the youngest player in Major League Baseball history to hit a postseason home run, the second-youngest player to hit more than one home run in a playoff game and the following season he became the youngest player in Astros history to go deep on Opening Day.

Lance McCullers sometimes employs unorthodox training methods to keep it interesting. He’s been known to swing an axe in the backyard, or even do squats with his wife Kara on his shoulders.
Another way Kara and Lance support each other is in the passion they share for animal advocacy and protection. They have a rescue dog, a husky named Minka, and they’ve acted on their passion by creating the Lance McCullers Jr. Foundation to invest, bring awareness and develop programs aimed at advocating for stray and homeless animals across the country.
