Current Peoria Chiefs shortstop Hak-Ju Lee is rated the sixth best prospects in the Minor League system of the Chicago Cubs. During the “Road to Wrigley” game earlier this month, I asked the infielder about which players he looked up to his as he continued his development in the Cubs system. The Jeonju, South Korea native mentioned former Cub Hee-Seop Choi, and current Cleveland Indians star Shin-Soo Choo. Lee described Choi as a “really good hitter,” and Choo’s current numbers

Choi spent four seasons in the Cubs farm system where he was considered one of the organization’s top prospects. Then On September 3, 2002, Choi made his Major League debut against the Milwaukee Brewers and became the first Korean-born position player to play in the Major Leagues.
