Texas Rangers outfielder Choo Shin-soo, remembering the lean years after he arrived in the United States from South Korea to pursue his major league dreams, has pledged $1,000 to each of the 191 minor leaguers in the team's farm system.
"I can help other people", Choo, who is heading into his final year of a $130 million, seven-year contract, said Wednesday in a conference call.
Disney's Artemis Fowl Is Going Straight to Streaming on Disney+
Disney+, the dedicated streaming service owned and operated by Disney, is set to be launched in India on April 3. Today it brings quality movies, episodic storytelling, music, and stage plays to consumers throughout the world.
Choo's donation stems from wanting to help out minor leaguers like Major League Baseball veterans did for him so many years ago. When the news broke that the Rangers (along with the rest of the sport) were suspending operations and sending players home, Choo immediately thought. There were some hard times in the minor leagues, including the 2005 season when there sometimes was no money to purchase diapers for his then-newborn son.
Choo's donation will provide support to about 200 players who were impacted by MLB's temporary shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. "It is going to help my wife and I out a lot".

White expressed that he hopes to one day be a leader like Choo and repay the favor by helping other minor league players. "I don't want to lose any players over money". Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News verifies the tale as well as has a lot more on Choo's contribution.
"Hey, Choo, this is Eli", White texted. While he began sharing his baseball experiences with the younger players, Choo desired to do something more. His big deal with the Rangers came after his only season in Cincinnati, when he hit.285 and had a.423 on-base percentage in 2013.
