Torii displays generosity with Bronx fan

NEW YORK -- Add "Good Samaritan" to the list of Torii Hunter's duties in an Angels uniform.

The right fielder was caught on camera on Tuesday night helping out a fan at Yankee Stadium who had dropped his sunglasses onto the warning track during the Halos' 6-4 win over the Yankees.

During the play, Hunter backed up to the warning track to catch a fly ball off the bat of Nick Swisher. After making the catch and throwing the ball back to the infield, Hunter backtracked to return the shades.

"He dropped his glasses, they fell over and he wanted to give me a dollar," said Hunter, who turned down the reward. "I said thanks, though. It was a nice gesture."

Hunter didn't accept the buck, but he wasn't able to turn down the thumbs-up the fan flashed him from the front row.
