Shin-Soo Choo to give $1,000 to each Rangers minor leaguer




 

Earlier this week Major League Baseball announced that it will make payments of $400 a week to each minor leaguer through May 31. That's helpful for minor leaguers who, as everyone knows at this point, mostly live on a shoestring.

Texas Rangers DH/OF Shin-Soo Choo is pitching in with some supplemental help, however, and is going to give each of the 190 players in the Texas Rangers minor league system a check for $1,000. That's according to South Korean news service Naver Sports. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News has confirmed the report.


Nice move. Every little bit of good anyone can do for anyone else is welcome these days.
