Torii Hunter made news this offseason when he signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.

But the veteran outfielder, one of the most thoughtful and respected players in Major League Baseball, has now made different kind of headlines.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Hunter expressed his feelings about ever playing with a gay teammate.

“For me, as a Christian… I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, it’s not right,” Hunter replied. “It will be difficult and uncomfortable.”

Earlier this year, boxer Orlando Cruz came out of the closet – but no active team member has ever admitted he was gay.
