Hometown favorites Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa surprised the staff at Belong Kitchen with a special event. Belong is a nonprofit grab-and-go kitchen that employs adults with intellectual and developmental differences. After Belong employee Ellie Brown ran into Altuve at a shopping center, she asked him to sign her hat. Altuve apologized for not having anything to sign with, so he offered to visit her at work the next day with a marker in hand. Ellie thanked him, adding “If you come, you better bring Correa with you.” The second baseman and shortstop made good on Altuve’s offer and surprised the staff at Belong. The Belong employees and volunteers (and baseball players) are (top row, from left): Kiana Garcia, Ellie Brown, Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, John Pitner, Rebecca Nuckolls, Kendall Tate, Yosselin Martinez, Kim Brown, and Amy Hubbard; (bottom row, from left): Natalie Sirota, Amy Long, Terri Pitner, Lara Tate, Paige Faas, and Alden Faas.
