Astros player Alex Bregman shocked a Houston teenager when he stopped on a Texas road to help the young man and his father when their car broke down. 

"When your car breaks down and @ABREG_1 stops to help you," Guillermo Flores of Houston wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a photo of him with his father and Bregman. 

"Nice Jersey y’all get home safe," Bregman tweeted in response, pointing to the Astros jersey Flores was wearing in the photo .

"We thought this would be a good idea to come help a waitress who’s struggling right now. I think it’s a good deed and I think when you’re an athlete or someone who has the platform that we have, it’s important to give back and really use that platform in the right way," he said in a video on the way to the restaurant to give the waitress the large tip.
