Athletes on the East Coast are embracing the blizzard

Saturday January 23rd, 2016

A giant snowstorm hit the East Coast on Friday evening, and continued well into Saturday, leaving over a foot of snow in New York City and Washington, D.C. No one seemed to enjoy this more than Carlos Correa.

The Astros shortstop was right in the midst of the blizzard on Saturday, and decided to play some snow baseball.

He wasn’t the only athlete to make the most of the snow. Mike Trout helped out The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore and provided him with an update from his parents’ house in Milville, N.J.

Correa’s teammate Dallas Keuchel showed off his snow beard.

Wizards forward Kris Humphries found some cross-country skiers in the streets of Washington, D.C.


Why not go skiing on the street today. #dc #snowday @theguyinmn

Tampa Bay Rays leftfielder Brandon Guyer got in a solid shoveling workout.

And, Chris Paul sort of dressed for the snow after playing in New York City on Friday night.

Stay warm, and stay safe.
