Rangers vet Choo giving $1K each to 191 Texas minor leaguers

Rangers veteran Shin-Soo Choo is helping out financially strapped minor league players with the season on hold, giving $1,000 each to 191 of them who are in the Texas organization.

Choo said Wednesday that he remembers the financial struggles when he was in the minors. The 37-year-old outfielder-designated hitter hopes the gifts will help ease those worries for the current minor leaguers, most he has never met, allowing them to stay focused on their baseball careers instead of having to figure out ways to make money.

"I've done it before, minor leagues, seven years," said Choo, who was 18 when he left South Korea to join the Seattle Mariners organization before the 2001 season. "I know right now the minor league system is better than 15-20 years ago, but still tough. Everything's very difficult, especially money wise."
