After arguing strikes, Torii Hunter gets ejected and starts undressing on field.
The Minnesota Twins have been pretty hot over the past month of baseball, but Torii Hunter was the hottest last night. After two straight strike calls, the latter that struck Hunter out, he immediately got into the umpire’s face to argue. He shared his disagreement with the umpire after the first close strike and then exploded after the strikeout.
He continued to yell at the umpire and was quickly ejected, and then manager Paul Molitor was also thrown out. Then, after continuing his tirade, he walked away a few feet and began undressing on the field, throwing his shin guard, his gloves, and his jersey. As a normally easygoing player, the 39-year old brought the crowd to its feet, bringing on a loud cheer for his entertaining debacle.
