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.

But, since calling Houston home, Carlos has been a rising star off the field as well. In July 2015, just over a month after being called up to the majors, Carlos supported the Houston Salvation Army’s efforts to help those in need. And, last season, Correa teamed up with the Houston Children’s Charity’s “A Better Night’s Sleep Program” to ensure one thing – children in the Houston area were getting a good night’s sleep.
