Most professional athletes hate doing post game interviews, it’s just the way it is. But every so often you find an athlete that likes to have fun with the reporters, and Torii Hunter, the Detroit Tigers outfielder, is one of those athletes.
After Miguel Cabrera hit a home run off of White Sox ace Chris Sale in yesterday’s game, Sale threw up and in on the Tigers next hitter, Prince Fielder. To me, it just looked like the pitch got away from Sale, but who knows for sure.
The following inning, Tigers pitcher Luke Putkonen threw behind Alexei Ramirez, which resulted in a classic, benches clearing brawl. Tigers manager Jim Leyland and Putkonen were ejected from the game.
After the game, reporters tried to ask Hunter about the incident, and his responses are priceless. Check out the interview after the jump.
Now that’s funny Mr. Hunter.
