Big-hitting Choo Shin-soo of the Texas Rangers recorded the 500th run of his career in Major League Baseball on Saturday.

He hit the milestone at the top of the first during an away game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The big moment came in Choo's 858th game and 10th season in MLB. He began his career in the league with the Seattle Mariners back in 2005.

Choo started as a leadoff hitter and left fielder and had two hits, one run and one RBI in four at-bats. He recorded two hits against David Price, the 2012 winner of the Cy Young Award in the American League.

Despite Choo's efforts, the Rangers lost 5-4.
