Torii Hunter Jr. Commits To Notre Dame To Play Football

I can only imagine what it’s like  being a big time professional athlete and then turning around to see your own child blaze his path in a sport.

The Hunter family of major league glory has entered that fray, accept this Hunter is not playing baseball.

USA Today is reporting that Torii Hunter Jr, son of Anaheim Angels star Torii Hunter has committed to play football at Notre Dame.

Jr. is a 6-foot 172 pound senior from Prosper, Texas.

Reports state that Hunter committed after watching the Irish defeat Michigan 13-6 this past Saturday.  Hunter Jr. was in attendance for that game.

Hunter was also being recruited by Arizona State, Utah, and Nebraska.

Sr. sent out a congratulatory tweet yesterday as a proud father.
