Even though it is still early in his career, Shin-Soo Choo is already one of the more successful players from South Korea. This is somewhat surprising as although we mostly hear about Japanese players, the South Koreans usually have a very good showing at the World Baseball Classic and Olympics. Choo will look to bounce back from an injury-filled 2012 season and be a catalyst for the powerful Cincinnati Reds offense.

Things have often happened quickly in Choo’s life. In 2000, before he even graduated high school in South Korea, the Seattle Mariners signed him. And then there’s the story about Shin-Soo Choo’s wife WonMi Ha Choo. They met in South Korea in 2004 and after just a few months of dating, she moved to the U.S. to be with him.

Choo is a very hard worker and can attribute his good work ethic to his father, who was a boxer. Allegedly part of Choo’s regular workout includes fingertip pushups to strengthen his wrists, which to me just sounds awful.

Shin-Soo and his wife Won now reside in Arizona and honestly, we really can’t figure why that is. The couple has two sons and daughter born in 2005, 2009 and 2011.

For as consistent of a player that Ryan Ludwick is, he sure seems to switch team often. Just taking a guess here, but I'm sure that has to be pretty annoying. Apparently not if you're Ryan Ludwick's wife Joanie, as it seems like she relishes the task of finding new apartments.

Ludwick started his career in 2002 with Texas, before getting moved to Cleveland in 2003. After settling in with St. Louis, he started getting regular playing time in 2007 and blew up the next year with 37 bombs. Despite his emergence as every day player, he was traded two years later to San Diego in a 2010 deadline deal. I hope he didn't blink, because the very next trade deadline, San Diego shipped him back across the country to Pittsburgh. He didn't stick there, so Ludwick signed a one year deal with Cincinnati. Judging by his stats this year, there's hope he might may not have to pack and leave... at least not right away.

Ludwick first met his wife in 4th grade. But this isn't a story about childhood sweethearts. Both Ryan and Joanie continued on with their respective life's until their paths crossed again after college. They were married in 2003 and built a home in Texas. They have one son, Stetson, who was born in 2008.

The Cincinnati Reds have been winning all year long. Their offense has been clicking and pitching has performed above expectations, especially the bullpen. But what people often overlook in the home run crazed world is defense. A team’s defense up the middle is especially important, and that’s where rookie shortstop Zack Cozart has shined.

Zack Cozart’s wife Chelsea Cozart must be especially proud of him. She has been there every step of the way, watching him progress through the minors. When he made his debut last year, Chelsea flew up to Milwaukee with his family to catch the game. Judging by her Twitter page, she seems to watch most games actually, which even as a baseball fan I don’t think I’ve ever done for my hometown team. But when you have the “best husband in the world” (according to her Twitter account), you’ll do anything to support him it seems.

Zack and Chelsea appear to be your typical high school sweethearts. But baseball wasn’t always his true love. He was the starting QB for his high school team, but broke his wrist in practice and moved on from the sport. They both grew up in Tennessee and went on attend University of Mississippi. After graduating in 2007, Zack was drafted in the second round by the Reds. They were married a little over a year later on September 27, 2008. Right now the couple only has two dogs but plan on starting a family at some point.
