Shin-Soo Choo Thanks Bird for Win

Cleveland Indians out fielder Shin-Soo Choo was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts when he came up to the plate with two on and none out in the 10th inning last night against the Kansas City Royals.
"When I got in the batter’s box, I thought they would want me to bunt, but I appreciated they let me hit away," he said. "I saw the birds. I’ve seen them for weeks and been worried maybe 200 of them would be flying and one would get hit when I was trying to field a ball. Then what would I do?"
You'd say thank you.

The ball nailed a low-flying seagull in the 10th inning, allowing Mark DeRosa to score from second without a throw. The bird flopped around for a couple minutes before flying away, and Cleveland went on to win 4-3.

Heard Dave Winfield and Randy Johnson were in contact with Choo after the game to welcome him to the exclusive club.
