GIF of the Day: Torii Hunter plays dead weight, makes umpire earn his paycheck

USA TODAY Sports

Nobody is safe from Torii Hunter's on-field antics, including today's second base umpire, Greg Gibson.

Prior to today's game, Torii Hunter had missed the two previous games in order to attend his son's high school graduation. He wasted no time getting back to having fun at the office today, pranking second base umpire Greg Gibson after the top of the first inning.
