Torii Hunter Jr. Keeps Baseball as an Option

Torii Hunter Jr., son of former major league all-star Torii Hunter Sr., was selected in the 23rd round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the Los Angeles Angels.  He has played both football and baseball at Notre Dame, although football became his primary sport for The Fighting Irish as a wide receiver.

However, Torii Jr. recently signed a pro contract with the Angels, thus keeping open an option for eventually playing pro baseball.  His signing does not affect his eligibility to play football this fall for Notre Dame.  It’s likely he will be drafted by an NFL team next year.
