  • Shin-Soo Choo makes first all-star game at age 36.

    it took a timely 47 game (and counting) consecutive Game On Base streak, to gain some attention, but after over 1,400 MLB games Rangers outfielder,Shin-Soo Choo has finally made his first MLB all-star team. He is having a fine overall season hitting .293 and he's on pace for a career year in home runs.Choo with 185 career home runs, has reached 20 home runs four times before wih seasons of 22,22,21, & 20 home runs. This year he's already at `17 home runs at a week before the all-star game break and you certainly can't rule out him reaching 30 home runs his season His pretty amazing 47 game streak of reaching base safely (and counting was the clinching factor in Choo gaining his all-star game selection.. Notification that he would be going to Washington D.C. to represent the Rangers in the all-star game came on July 8, five days before Choo's 36th birthday on July 13. The all-star game will be played on Tuesday, July 17.
    The two longest careers of active players without any all-star games to their credit came to an end yesterday with the Atlanta Braves outfielder, Nick Markakis getting an overdue first selection to an all-star game (elected as a National League starter) after playing in 1,928 MLB games.. He'd certainly had many good seasons at the start of his career with the Baltimore Orioles, but somehow he'd never got the all-star honor. Markakis has played in every one of the Braves' 89 games thus far this season .Choo's career was the second longest among players who had previously never made an all-star team. He was added to the American League team as a reserve after playing in 1,408 MLB games.

      Shin-Soo Choo, while not quite having another all-star season, nevertheless had a good one in 2019. He had a career high of 24 home runs for the season, with 93 runs scored, 61 RBI, 149 Hits and a .265 batting average.
      He boosted his career totals to 213 Home runs, 948 Runs scored, 767 RBI, 1,645 Hits in 1,619 Games and he now has a .275 career batting average.
      The 37-year old shows no sign of slowing down and is not planning on retiring soon. The 2020 season is the last year on his current contract.
