Things got a little awkward Wednesday during a Minnesota Twins news conference where it was announced that Torii Hunter was signing a one-year, $10.5 million deal to return to the Major League Baseball club after playing with the Detroit Tigers.

Hunter's response was, understandably, a bit awkward.
