Umpire Taps Torii Hunter In The Face After Benches Clear

Torii Hunter Gets Trapped In An Oxygen Chamber, Pisses In a Bottle,…

It's not known what happened next—whether Hunter stayed in the chamber too long and was forgotten about, or whether no one realized he was in there… » 8/17/11 1:32pm 8/17/11 1:32pm
