“If you build it, they will come.”

Torii Hunter built it when he went to Ralphs in Anaheim to promote the Pepsi Max Field of Dreams competition. And the fans, they came. Over 500 fans lined up to meet the Angels’ 9-time Gold Glove winning outfielder. Some arrived as early as 2:00 a.m. to reserve a spot to meet their favorite player. Who says West Coast fans aren’t passionate about baseball—particularly Angels baseball?

The mood in the crowd was very festive. Fans of all ages were sharing their favorite moments and showing off their memorabilia that they were going to get autographed. It’s “Break Out the Red Week” in Anaheim, and the fans in attendance clearly got the memo. Toriitown came out to meet their favorite player and the man for whom they cheer in right field.

AngelsWin.com got the opportunity to interview Torii prior to his time with the fans. We talked about who would be on his Field of Dreams lineup, the game against Verlander, how he’s adjusting to batting second in the lineup, what he saw in Mike Trout, and how the Angels will compete in the second half. Due to the massive turnout of Angels fans, we had to share our time with him with Ryan Falla, a writer for Monkey with a Halo. Some of the questions asked are from him.
