HOUSTON -- Highly touted prospect George Springer is making his major league debut on Wednesday night, batting second and playing right field for the Houston Astros. Discount Fake Shoes . Hes the first of a group of top prospects expected to help the Astros back to respectability after three straight 100-loss seasons. But hes trying not to put too much pressure on himself. "I have to understand who I am as a player and I understand what I can do, and just go out there and treat this like its any other game ... and try to help the Houston Astros win," he said. The 24-year-old outfielder had 37 homers and 108 RBIs with 45 stolen bases combined in Double-A and Triple-A last year. He was off to a strong start in Triple-A this season, too, hitting .353 with three homers and nine RBIs. There was a buzz around the ballpark on Wednesday with Springers arrival. The hashtag SpringerDay was trending on Twitter in Houston and fans were excitedly tweeting all day about his debut. General manager Jeff Luhnow was a little giddy about Springers call-up, too. "We dont want to rest all our hopes on one player, but hes a pretty good player and theres more behind him," Luhnow said. "If he does well, I think it will lift our team (which) is now struggling a little bit and lift our citys spirits and give us hope that theres more like him coming. Thats exciting. Thats what weve been working for." Springer was selected 11th overall by the Astros out of UConn in the 2011 amateur draft. Manager Bo Porter said he will be Houstons everyday right fielder. "When you look at ... the production in which hes been putting up and if you look at the woes weve had offensively and trying to get our offence going and having a guy of his calibre that we can plug into our offence, he can definitely help," Porter said. Springer knows people are looking for big things from him, but is careful not to get caught up in the hype. "The goal at the end of the day isnt about the future, it isnt about me, it isnt about anybody else, its about the Houston Astros and thats to go out and win," he said. His parents flew in from Connecticut to be at Wednesdays game and his father raved about his namesake. "Youre going to see some pretty special things out on the field ... his whole approach to the game," the elder George Springer said. "And he has a smile thats as infectious as it is contagious, and Im looking forward to seeing it myself because Im a baseball fan, too." Wholesake Fake Nike Air Force 1 .
