Carlos Javier Correa was born on the 22nd of September, 1994, in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Correa is the son to Carlos Sr. and Sandybel Oppenheimer. Although the family’s income was low, they had enough money to build a small house in Barrio Velázquez, a fishing village located in Santa Isabel. From an early age, Correa often played catch in an alley adjacent to his home, which prompted a neighbor to suggest enrolling him in a youth league, the parent-pitch category, when he was five years old.
On November 11, 2019, Correa married his girlfriend Daniella Rodriguez (2016 Miss Texas USA). And they have one baby boy born on November 29, 2021, and named “Kylo”.
Here are the best highlights of Carlos Correa’s career:
- AL Rookie of the Year (2015)
- All-Star (2017)
- World Series champion (2017)
- World Baseball Classic All-Tournament Team (2017)
In 2012, the Astros selected him as the first overall pick, outranking the projected top pick, Mark Appel. Correa was incredulous, only stating that he must have been dreaming, after entering the stage while hoisting the Flag of Puerto Rico. He signed with the Astros on June 7, 2012, agreeing to a $4.8 million signing bonus. Correa chose to wear the number 12 in his introduction to the media, donning it in homage to Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, but abandoned it afterward. In 2015, the Astros promoted Correa to the major leagues. He debuted in a 3-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox, going 1-for-4 with an RBI single off of Chris Sale. Correa began the 2016 season by becoming the youngest player in the Astros’ history to hit a home run on Opening Day. He missed playing time in September due to a shoulder injury. On June 28, Correa was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a back ailment. He was activated from the 10-day disabled list on August 10.
