I offered him a nice dollar amount. And he said, ‘No.’ I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with him?’ He said he’s from New Jersey, and Hurricane Sandy came and destroyed some parts of New Jersey, and he knows some people that were affected by it. He said, ‘The money that you offered me, could you donate it to this organization for Hurricane Sandy?’ That’s the kind of guy Rick Porcello is. I’m like, ‘Are you sure you don’t want anything? You’re OK?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, I’m straight.’"
Newest Detroit Tiger Torii Hunter who offered Porcello money for his #48
Awwwh look at Porcello being such a sweetheart!!! At least his number didn’t get stolen from him. But I must say, it’ll be weird to see him in a different number! Oh well, I still like #21. It’s my favorite number backwards! (#12 in case you didn’t catch that).

With one swing, Ortiz tied the game and helped the Red Sox send the AL championship series to Detroit tied one game apiece. (AP Photo/The Boston Globe, Stan Grosfeld)
