News travels fast in this social media driven world, but apparently it doesn't travel as fast as personalized baseball gear. Not long after Yahoo's Jeff Passan reported Shin-Soo Choo had agreed to a seven-year, $130 million contract with the Texas Rangers, Choo's wife took to Facebook to post photos of their three children already decked out in Choo Rangers shirseys with other assorted Texas items also in the photos.
The photos were originally posted in the comments section over at Lone Star Ball. Our pal Dan from MyKBO confirms those are in fact Choo's children, so we definitely have legitimate photos on our hands.
Of course, the reality is these photos indicate the Rangers and Choo were on the same page well before Saturday morning's agreement. But that doesn't change how cool it is to see the Choo children excited about the next phase of their father's career.
It's just too bad it's too late to send this out as a Christmas card. Maybe next year. And maybe with a fancy trophy situated somewhere in the background.
