The Texas Rangers are no strangers to philanthropic efforts in the Dallas and Tarrant County communities. It should then come as no surprise that Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo recently hosted a baseball clinic for 15 Southlake Miracle League kids at Carroll Senior High School on Nov. 13. Steve Buechele, newly named bench coach for the Rangers, and Tanner Scheppers, Rangers pitcher, joined Shin-Soo. With a career batting average of .282, Shin-Soo is a nine-year MLB veteran who joined the Rangers as an outfielder in 2014.

The mission of the Miracle League of Southlake is to “provide opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League baseball, regardless of their abilities; promote community support and sponsorship of Miracle Leagues; and promote the construction of special facilities that meet the unique needs of Miracle League players and their families.”

During the Miracle League baseball clinic, participants received coaching on batting, throwing and fielding. In addition, each camper was given a Rangers backpack, as well as a jersey, autographed baseball and a signed baseball card provided by Shin-Soo, who was accompanied by his sons. Southlake Carroll baseball players served as buddies to the Miracle League kids. 

“It was obvious to all of us who were able to watch the clinic that [Shin-Soo] and the other Rangers enjoyed their time with the kids. The kids’ smiles and enthusiasm were a clear indication of the enjoyment they had,” according to a Southlake Miracle League representative. “Thank you Shin-Soo Choo, Tanner Scheppers, Steve Buechele and the Texas Rangers for a tremendous experience for the kids and thanks for your support of the Miracle League.”
