Wiki

Torii Kedar Hunter (pronounced /ˈtɔri/; born July 18, 1975, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Hunter has taken away many home runs throughout his 11-year baseball career by "climbing the fence" in the outfield. He has won nine consecutive Gold Glove Awards as an outfielder.

Hunter resides during the off-season in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex suburb of Prosper, Texas. He is a cousin of former MLB outfielder Choo Freeman. Despite the same spelling, Hunter was not named after torii, the gates to a Japanese Shinto shrine. Hunter says jokingly, "I think, when my mom filled out the paperwork after I was born, she accidentally put two 'I's."
