Earlier this month, Russia, which cooperates with OPEC , the oil cartel, declined to cut production in order to boost prices . Saudi Arabia , in response, offered deep discounts on its product, in a move that would potentially flood the oil market.


Choo's donation stems from wanting to help out minor leaguers like Major League Baseball veterans did for him so many years ago. "I don't want to lose any players over money".

"I've done it before, minor leagues, seven years", said Choo, who was 18 when he left South Korea to join the Seattle Mariners organization before the 2001 season.
