19-season is how long Torii Hunter played in the majors. Hunter had five All-Star appearances, nine Gold Gloves, eight trips to the postseason, among other awards... Hunter, fought back tears has the Twins GM, Terry Ryan began speaking at the press conference.

Hunter, although going through an emotional time, was also surprised to see former teammate Justin Morneau come back to Minnesota to wish Hunter well in retirement.

Hunter said goodbye to his time on the field, but possibly has a future to keep baseball in his life. Hunter could make his way back into the Twins organization in the front office or even as a TV analyst... first, he wants to spend time with his family before making any decisions.

Good luck Torii!!!
