There’s no other team like this. Texas Choo Shin-soo took care of everything from farewell games to farewell games.
The Texas Rangers have taken care of Choo Shin-soo (38) until the end, making sure of his image as a close team.
On the 24th (Korea time), the Texas club said on its official SNS, “Thank you for Choo Shin-soo’s hits and smiles, “CHOOOOO (Choo Shin-soo’s nickname and cheering chants)” and his achievements and everything.” I wish you good luck in Korea. Choo, Choo!” he said with affection 토토사이트
“Choo Shin-soo, who made his debut with the Seattle Mariners in 2005, signed a $130 million contract in 2014 with the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds.”
Choo Shin-soo, who consistently played as Texas’ No. 1 hitter, played 799 games in Texas alone, recorded 771 hits (114 home runs), 355 RBIs and 52 steals with a batting average of 0.260, on-base percentage of 0.363 slugging percent, 0.429 OPS.
Although Texas only made two postseason appearances during Choo’s presence, Choo Shin-soo did enough as a clubhouse leader. Choo Shin-soo, who went through all his hard minor league life, was a model for young players and was recognized for his leadership by taking care of minor league players who were difficult to make ends meet.
As such, Texas also took care of Choo Shin-soo carefully from the moment he left to the end.
At the farewell game in September last year, the Texas Rangers planned a surprise event that Choo Shin-soo did not know. Due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) last year, spectators were not allowed to enter the regular season.
However, Texas invited Choo’s family to the farewell game with cooperation, and Choo was able to show his last hit in Texas in front of his family.
After the farewell game, Choo Shin-soo became the second FA, and local media, including Texas club officials, thanked Choo Shin-soo for his dedication to the team for seven years.
His relationship with Texas seemed completely over. However, when Choo Shin-soo decided to go to Korea on the 23rd, Texas once again thanked Choo Shin-soo and cheered him on, creating a heartwarming scene until the end.
Meanwhile, Choo Shin-soo, who had been with him for seven years, left for Korea, but Texas immediately welcomed a new Korean player. Yang Hyun-jong (32), who joined the spring camp on the 23rd after self-isolation, is scheduled to sweat to enter the Major League roster for a month.
