Tigers’ Torii Hunter pulls a veteran move

Tori Hunter has been in the big leagues for 17 years; the guy knows a thing or two. You hear stories about Hunter deking base runners by pretending he will catch ball he won’t, or pretending he won’t catch a ball he will. Torii will take a bad hack at a pitch early in the game—when there’s no one on base—hoping to get that same pitch later in the game, when there’s a runner in scoring position. Torii Hunter is a veteran ballplayer who knows how to play the game and you won’t get a better example of that than the fifth inning of Friday night’s loss to the Detroit Tigers.
