Hunter's Bio

Hunter's BiographyPersonal

Hello guys.  I would first of all like to thank you for your continued support for me.  I am dedicating this page to my family, friends, and fans. 

I realize that many fans would like to get to know me on a more personal basis, and I am going to attempt to answer some of the FAQ's that I receive.  I also have a blog:


that I update weekly on the site.

I am proud to be a native Texan.  I was born in Fort Worth, Texas on April 13, 1983 at All Saints hospital.  I lived there until I was 4 years old when my family and I moved to Denver, Colorado.  We lived in Denver for one year and moved to Waxahachie, Texas.  I went to school there for the first 6 years of my education. 

We moved to Arlington, Texas, the place that I call home, in the middle of my 5th grade year.  I attended Arlington High School and lettered 2 years on the Colt baseball team.  I attended Texarkana Jr. College for one year, and was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 40th round in June. I decided to return to home to the University of Texas Arlington for two years and had the opportunity to play with my older brother at the collegiate level.  In 2004, during my junior campaign in college, my life long dream of playing professional baseball came true.  I was ecstatic to be drafted in the second round by the Houston Astros.  My agent and I thought that I would be taken in the third round by the Mariners.

I began my pro career by playing in the New York Penn League for the
Tri-City ValleyCats.  I then spent my first full season split between Lexington, Kentucky in the South Atlantic League and the Salem Avalanche in the Carolina League.  I played my second full season in AA with the Corpus Christi Hooks where we captured the Texas League Championship.  Last season I began the year with the Round Rock Express, AAA, and on April 27th I was called up to the big leagues.  

My interests off the field of baseball consist of a variety of activities.  I enjoy spending
time with my family as much as possible.  Being around those who love and support me no matter what happens is always a blessing in my opinion.  I enjoy watching movies, listening to music of all varieties, eating at new restaurants, playing video games with my friends, and playing ping-pong.  I am extremely competitive and thrive on finding activities that are interactive and challenging. 

I would like to welcome you to my site, and I invite you to contact me with any questions you have.  I will do my best to get a question and answer system running.  Currently I am focusing on generating support for Happy Hills Farm in Granbury, Texas.  

It is a great program that aids children who need a safe place to live.  Feel free to contact me for more information.
