Anaheim – The Angels put All-Star right fielder Torii Hunter on baseball’s restricted list Monday after his 17-year-old son’s arrest in Prosper, Texas, on suspicion of felony sexual assault of a child. Darius McClinton-Hunter, of McKinney, Texas, was arrested along with four high school classmates after a monthlong investigation, according to Prosper police.
You have to feel for Torii Hunter. Sometimes the kids of successful men just make a mess of things. What’s next? Darius gets ahold of some German pornography? Or made his dad get on the dugout phone in the middle of the game and say “Put down the gun, and let the marching band go”? Or worse still…
So best wishes to the Hunter family as well as everyone at Prosper High. Torii will stop by the school a little later, Sister Margaret. @JerryThornton1
