Torii Hunter Flipped Out After Ejection, Tossed Jersey on Field
By Mike Cardillo
Torii Hunter got quite testy tonight in Minnesota. The veteran outfielder was ejected by home plate umpire Mark Ripperger arguing after a called third strike. From there Hunter got angrier, needing to be restrained and appeared to come very close to making contact with one of the umpires.
Before he walked off the field he threw his batting gloves, armor and finally jersey onto the field.
Hunter may pick up a suspension for this tantrum.
Twins manager Paul Molitor also was ejected, the first of his career.
