Temple Week: Temple Coach Talks Notre Dame

Here's a link to Temple Head Coach Matt Rhule talking about Saturday's game with Notre Dame...


Temple Week: Coach Kelly's Press Conference

Domer Dad Torii Hunter, Sr. -- Retires from MLB

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!
  • 19 seasons
  • 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 season:
  • 22 home runs
  • 81 RBI

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!
