Earlier today some Detroit folks were tweeting that Torii Hunter would wear his familiar 48 with the Tigers, which had previously been worn by Rick Porcello.

As we’ve noted over the years, there is a long and rich history of sports figures selling their numbers to bigger stars for a price. A watch. A grill.  A vacation.  A college fund. Things like that.  Porcello, however, wasn’t thinking of himself when he handed his number over to Hunter:

 

Very nice, gentlemen.
