Since entering "The Show" in 1997, Torii Hunter has made playing center field look easy. His electrifying, fearless style earned him seven Gold Gloves, as well as a new $90-million contract with the Los Angeles Angels. While these accomplishments speak volumes about his talent, they say little about the challenges overcome by Hunter, who grew up with a crack-addicted father and turned to baseball for salvation. Given the critical role the sport played in his own life, he is dismayed that many African-Americans no longer feel connected to the national pastime. Real Sports correspondent James Brown sits down with Hunter to discuss his life, his concerns and his efforts to change this troubling trend.
