The Angels put in a pinch runner for Mike Trout during Sunday’s game. And his name was Torii Hunter. Not that Torii Hunter! No, his son. Asked to come in and take over for Trout in the sixth inning of a 7-0 deficit at the hands of the Chicago White Sox, Hunter Jr. made his debut with ‘that’ Torii Hunter watching from a suite above. Yes, dad was there, and was nervous…

 

Hunter Jr. went 0-for-2 in his first game with the Halos. But he was as excited as ever. And so was dad, as they both expressed in their interview with Jose Mota after the game…

 

What a moment for a father and son. And whether or not Junior makes it, this is special.
