Reds' Shin-Soo Choo sets team record for hit by pitches

Cincinnati's Shin-Soo Choo has developed a rather unorthodox, yet effective method to pad his on-base percentage in 2013. With his 25th plunking coming at the hands of Chicago's Travis Wood on Monday, Choo shattered the Reds franchise record set by catcher Jason LaRue in 2004. Despite the bruises and bumps surely collected in spades by the Korean outfielder, Choo has shown...
