Shin-Soo Choo has quietly become one of the best players in the game. He's also shown to be quite good under pressure. Facing the possibility of mandated military service for his native South Korea, Choo led his country to gold at the Asian games in November, hitting .571 with three homers and 11 RBI, two steals and five walks in the five-game tournament. With the gold, he and his teammates were exempted from the military service. While it can be tough to play at Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park, that's nothing compared to having his career on the line for five games.

The Indians, of course, are the subject of one of my all-time favorite movies, Major League. However, that's just too easy for this space. I assumed a franchise as old and storied as the Indians would have something else.
