Angels | Albert Pujols, Torii Hunter nearly came to blows last year
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 13:03:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols and former teammate Torii Hunter, now of the Detroit Tigers, reportedly came close to fighting with each other during a team meeting last season. Not long before the meeting, Hunter had a confrontation in the dugout with SP C.J. Wilson. Pujols confronted Hunter during the meeting, unaware that the two players had already settled their differences. Pujols and Hunter exchanged words, with Hunter accusing Pujols of being a bad teammate even when the Angels won because of his tendency to pout if he didn't get any hits. After Pujols told Hunter to shut up, Hunter charged Pujols from the other end of the clubhouse but ended up being restrained by RP LaTroy Hawkins and OF Vernon Wells. Hunter and Pujols eventually settled the dispute and remain friends.
