Torii Hunter Jr. Balances Football and Baseball During Spring

Spring is a tough time for Torii Hunter Jr., as he looks to balance his time between football and baseball at Notre Dame.

Torii is currently a junior, with two seasons under his belt on the Fighting Irish football team.  He is in his second season on the baseball team, although he has played sparingly.

He is the son of Torii Hunter, who retired from Major League Baseball in 2015 after putting in 19 seasons, including five All-Star selections and nine Gold Glove awards.

Torii was drafted out of high school by the Detroit Tigers in the 36th round of the 2013 MLB Draft, but chose to attend Notre Dame.
