Torii Hunter says he's scared of alligators, as most human beings would be. So when an alligator visited the Detroit Tigers clubhouse Tuesday — it's spring training in Florida, this stuff happens — team ace Justin Verlander dared Hunter to give it a kiss.
Like the clubhouse leader that he is, Hunter didn't back down. He shared this photo on Instagram along with the hashtags: " #defeatmyfear #stillfearit."
Maybe it's just another fun spring training story that Hunter can tell years into the future.
