Torii Hunter Talks to Astronaut, Solicits Interesting Questions From Twitter Followers (Video)


For kids growing up, being an astronaut or a professional baseball player are two common dream jobs.

On Friday, children tuning in to Fox Sports West got a unique look at both of those careers, as Angels outfielder Torii Hunter made a phone call to astronaut Joe Acaba, a big Angels fan on a four-month mission at the International Space Station right now.

Hunter asked a variety of questions, some of which he solicited from his Twitter followers. Among the questions were whether or not the Angels' "Big A" is visible from space and what the common procedure is for using the restroom in space. Hunter had a tough time containing his grin when asking the second question.

Acaba will return home in September, and Hunter invited him to visit the clubhouse, adding that he expects the Angels to be getting ready for the playoffs at that point.

Watch the video to see Hunter and Acaba's entertaining back-and-forth.
