Torii Hunter had 192 homers in his 11 years with the Twins, 105 home runs in his five years with the Angels and he now has three home runs in his first year with the Tigers. That makes 300 career homers, which is a somewhat exclusive club. Hunter, who turns 38 years old in July, is just its 136th member.
MLB.com has video of Hunter hitting the milestone blast at Minnesota’s Target Field, where he never played a game as a member of the Twins but still has many fans. The veteran outfielder entered play Sunday batting .290/.340/.391 with 34 runs scored and 24 RBI in 59 games. He signed a two-year, $26 million free agent contract with the Tigers this winter.
