Detroit Tigers: Is Torii Hunter Hall of Fame worthy?

It wasn’t too long ago that Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter was one of the best center fielders in baseball, at the plate and in the field. Hunter, now 39 years old, won nine-consecutive Gold Gloves from 2001-09, patrolling center field for the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels. He dominated the position for the good part of a decade. As Hunter plays in the final year...

Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball (video)

Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer off Josh Tomlin to put the Detroit Tigers ahead by a score of 4-0 in an eventual 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians at Comerica Park on Sunday, but it is what happened once the ball cleared the fence that makes the round-tripper a more compelling — and embarrassing […] The post Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball...

Battle royale for homer in Tribe game

In the fourth inning of Sunday's Indians and Tigers game, Torii Hunter deposited a ball into the left field stands and a battle of strength and perseverance broke out between two men. The use of the fetal position/head-block by the Tigers' fan is just a veteran savvy move. Have to hope the Tribe fan was wrestling that ball away in hopes of chucking it 200 feet back into the...

Gwynn's death makes Tigers, MLB reassess use of smokeless tobacco

When I heard about Tony Gwynn's death last month, I thought about a story I had seen on 60 Minutes many years ago.

Marsee found a small sore in his mouth, which turned out to be cancer.  Doctors had to remove half of Marsee's tongue. Marsee also underwent...

VIDEO: Torii Hunter Goes Deep During Detroit Tigers’ 16-Run Explosion in Kansas City

The Kansas City Royals may be the Detroit Tigers’ closest competition in the AL Central, but there was a chasm between the two rivals on Thursday night. Detroit’s offense lit up Jeremy Guthrie and the K.C. pitching, scoring three in the first, three in the fourth, then eight in the fifth en route to a 16-4 blowout victory. The Tigers came up with that 16-spot despite hitting...

WATCH: Detroit Tigers Torii Hunter Takes a Glove to the 'Little Torii's' Sliding in to Second

When you have been playing as long as Torii Hunter has been you are accustomed to having to do what it takes to help your team win--even if you know it is going to hurt. Pain is sometimes part of the game, but it doesn't mean you have to like it.Like on Tuesday night when he went to slide in to second and Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon failed to tag his leg, but instead tagged...

Torii Hunter ‘kept performing’ while making love to wife despite leg cramp (vid)

Somehow, a conversation between Jim Rome and Torii Hunter about what the Detroit Tigers veteran thought about LeBron James pulling himself out of an NBA Finals game last week because of severe cramping took an unexpected, somewhat kinky turn. During an interview on “Jim Rome on Showtime” program,  Hunter’s thoughts on LeBron’s cramps spun wildly […] The post Torii Hunter...
