DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter is trying to do everything he can to play every day.
So far, so good.
Hunter has played in each of the Tigers six games this season and has been the dependable player they were hoping for at the plate and in the field.
The 37-year-old Hunter uses a rolling pin with wheels and some small balls he got from a chiropractor two or three years ago to loosen his muscles each day.
He is leading Detroit's everyday players with a .393 batting average. He hasn't made an error in right field and has one assist, throwing out a runner at home to help the Tigers win a weekend series against the New York Yankees.
