The results for Hall of Fame voting will be revealed this coming week.
By Tuesday, we will know who will receive the call for the Hall and be enshrined in Cooperstown this coming summer.
Torii Hunter is one of the players that is still on the ballot, but has not been trending in the right direction.
Still, the Minnesota Twins legend had a solid career, having won nine Gold Gloves, two Silver Slugger Awards, and earning seven All-Star selections.
On Twitter, a local Minnesota news channel vouched for Hunter, saying that he is Hall of Fame material and that he deserves a chance to be enshrined in Cooperstown.

Hunter hit for a lifetime average of .277 and hit a total of 353 home runs.
He also had a career WAR of 50.7.
His nine Gold Gloves also speak for themselves.
Unfortunately, as was stated by Jon Morosi and Keith Costas on MLB Network, the 47-year-old isn’t trending in the right direction in terms of voting.
At the very least though, he has the full support of Twins fans and the entire state of Minnesota.
In addition to his 12 seasons with the Twins, Hunter spent five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels and two with the Detroit Tigers.
He was a player that possessed a unique skillset that allowed him to dominate both offensively and defensively.
He’ll certainly have the support of Twins fans.
We’ll have to wait and see if maybe he can start to trend upwards in the voting and ultimately get his chance to be elected to the Hall.
