Torii Hunter headbutts umpire, earns 4-game suspension
Torii Hunter's wild outburst would make a great baseball card.
Former Twin Torii Hunter has been suspended for four-games as a result of Friday's insane tirade.
Hunter went crazy over a called third strike. He got in the umpire's face, hitting him in the eye with the brim of his batting helmet. That earned him an ejection.
But that wasn't enough. Hunter continued to carry on, throwing a bag of baseballs on the field.
This is one of the all-time great on-field tantrums, and it really must be seen to be believed. Just be glad he's not on the Twins anymore.
