Tigers | Torii Hunter says he was misquoted

Updating a previous item, Detroit Tigers OF Torii Hunter says Los Angeles Times reporter Kevin Baxter misquoted him in a story he was writing about gay athletes in professional sports. The original article said Hunter would be uncomfortable with a gay teammate, but Hunter took to Twitter to say "I'm very disappointed in Kevin Baxter's article in which my quotes and feelings have been misrepresented. He took two completely separate quotes and made them into one quote that does not express how I feel as a Christian or a human being. I have love and respect for all human beings regardless of race, color or sexual orientation."
