Jump To Torii Hunter's Stats
With a name that can be an interesting conversation piece, Victorii Kedar Hunter also has much more we can talk about. Like his cushy net worth of $105,930,500, his impressive statistical accomplishments or his overall Major League Baseball career. He currently prowls the centerfield for the the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Drafted right out of high school in 1993, Hunter toiled in the minors until he made his debut for the Minnesota Twins in 1997. For the next ten years, he earned his keep by dazzling his teammates and the home crowd as a Twin. When time came to negotiate a new contract, the Twins seemed to have held out the hope that Hunter would want to end his career in Minnesota without him pushing too hard. He opted out to accept a more generous offer from the then Anaheim Angels in Southern California – a contract that spanned five years and paid $90 million.
With all his talent, Hunter collected a few awards along his 13-year career. In the field, he has been awarded nine consecutive Gold Glove Awards. In addition, he is a four-time MLB All-Star.
Born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, but living in Prosper, Texas, the 36-year old is the recipient of the 2009 Silver Slugger, a Branch Rickey Award, the 2007 Marvin Miller Man of The Year’s and the Players Choice Award.
The vaunted Sporting News in 2009 listed Hunter as the 44th of 50 greatest current baseball players. Some of his stats include 281 home runs; 1,819 hits and 177 stolen bases with a .274 batting average. One of the highlights of his career was his first time hitting three home runs in the same game against the San Diego Padres in 2009.
