Minnesota Twins veteran Torii Hunter shows his “slight” displeasure after being called out on strikes in last night’s game.
By Robby Sabo
Every now and again, the baseball gods treat us to an explosion for the ages.
We’re not talking about a top of the fourth, 11-run inning explosion. Oh no, no. We’re discussing the Earl Weaver’s and Lou Pinella’s of the world type explosions.
Last week, we were privy to watching Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon go bananas against the New York Yankees.
Last night, we received the same treatment from a player – a 39-year old veteran of Major League Baseball.
The usually cool-headed Torii Hunter, of the Minnesota Twins, went absolutely nuts when he was called out on strikes in the bottom of the eighth-inning against the Kansas City Royals.
To be fair, the pitch did look a little outside. At the same time, though, Hunter knows to protect with two-strikes.
Frustration leads to the most hilarious of situations.
If only Hunter thought smart here. He could’ve thrown is filthy jockstrap onto the diamond as well. That would’ve made for a real headline.
The Twins went on to fall easily to the Royals by a final of 7-2.
