Torii Hunter plays catch with Leukemia patient named after him

Torii Hunter is widely regarded as one of the “good guys” of professional baseball.  Great teammate and great human being.  The latter was on display today, as he played catch with a youngster named Hunter.  Yes, he was named after Torii by his huge Minnesota Twins fans parents, and they drove their son to Detroit as part of the Make-a-Wish foundation.  Click to watch the video from the report by Dakota Gardner of MLB.com (via @shannon_hogan/Fox Tigers)
