Torii Hunter, the Detroit Tigers newest player, took to Twitter on Friday to ask for recommendations on places to stay in the southeastern Michigan area.
On Thursday, free agent outfielder Torii Hunter made news by agreeing to a contract with the Detroit Tigers. Hunter's signing stoked the hot stove for baseball fans in Detroit.
