Choo has been a great Phiten advocate and we are excited to have him onboard as an official brand ambassador
Torrance, Ca. (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
Choo joins fellow MLB players Justin Verlander, C.J. Wilson, Curtis Granderson and Yu Darvish as an official Phiten athlete. Choo began his baseball career playing for the South Korean national baseball team. At the 2000 World Junior Baseball Championship he was selected as the Most Valuable Player and Best Pitcher. His talents quickly caught the attention of MLB scouts and in 2005 Choo joined the Seattle Mariners. Choo is a long-time Phiten supporter who is often seen wearing a custom triple-twist Phiten Tornado necklace and the MLB Power Sleeve.
“I’ve always been a big fan of Phiten’s accessories and support products and am happy to officially represent the company,” said Choo.
Still in the prime of his career, Choo is starting his first season with the Cincinnati Reds. His eight year career in the U.S. is one of the longest and most successful MLB careers held by a South Korean player.
“Choo is a welcomed addition to the Phiten team,” said Joe Furuhata, vice president of Phiten USA. “He has been a great Phiten advocate and we are excited to have him onboard as an official brand ambassador.”
