"Houston, I want to say thank you!!! Thank you for everything over these last 2 seasons," he tweeted. "I am damn proud to wear the Astros uniform & go to war for these guys and for you these last two years. Thank you for everything. #HTown

McCullers also called Astros fans "Hands down best fans in sports!!!!!!"

And he had a touching message for his teammates, as well.

"To my teammates, I love you. You are the most special group of people I have ever been around and you made me want to be a better person, player and teammate. I will never forget the moments we shared together. Thank you for everything."

If those tweets aren't enough to make you fall in love with this guy, did you know he loves animals and his Lance McCullers Jr. Foundation promotes pet adoptions and raises awareness for pet shelters and programs?

He often uses Twitter to help find families for homeless animals.

And he's one of the snazziest dressers in the clubhouse.

No wonder we literally LOVE Lance McCullers!
