Torii Hunter Kisses An Alligator [PHOTO]

CBS DETROIT – The entertaining photos from Detroit Tigers spring training in Lakeland, Fla., just keep on coming.

Monday the picture making the rounds was supermodel and Justin Verlander’s girlfriend Kate Upton showing a swimsuit-clad Bryan Holaday how to model, and Tuesday the odd image is outfielder Torii Hunter smooching an alligator.

Evidently, Hunter’s bold move toward the reptile was encouraged by Verlander.

Verlander and Hunter were connected in a less goofy way but still unique way last season, when Verlander called a walk-off home run by Hunter in late August.
