Uplifting news broke Wednesday afternoon that Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo was donating $1,000 to each of the 190 minor leaguers in the organization. The veteran is set to earn $21 million this season and while ownership should be the ones paying the young players in the system, the gesture is still an awesome one.
Players on other teams should follow in Choo's footsteps if ownership drags their feet and complains about the almighty budget. $190,000 is a lot of money. However, some players make that in a few games. Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper is one of those players and should reciprocate Choo's donation for those in his own organization.
