Notre Dame Dad Torii Hunter, Sr. (father of Fighting Irish wide receiver Torii Hunter, Jr.) called it a career yesterday as he
announced his retirement from Major League Baseball after 19 years in
the big leagues...
What a career it was!
9 Gold Gloves
5 All-Star Game selections
309 home runs
195 stolen bases
How's this -- he turned 40 years-old this past July
and he still produced these types of numbers for the Twins in his final
22 home runs
To put Torii Hunter's career in perspective --
there's only one man in the history of baseball who has more than 9 Gold
Gloves, 309 home runs and 195 stolen bases -- WILLIE MAYS.
Torii Hunter was a great teammate -- a class act -- Major League Baseball loses a gem today.
It will be nice seeing him around Notre Dame a little more often!
