Yesterday to Today: MLB Stars Who Hunt

Baseball fans across the country flocked to the ballpark to enjoy Major League Baseball's opening weekend this year. America's most storied sport was at full throat over the Easter break and all eyes were on the stars of our National Pastime. Is this the year the Cubs finally win it all? Is Albert Pujols going to lead the Angels to a World Series? Will the Florida Miami Marlins implode under Ozzie Guillen?

These questions are about as important to baseball fans as the rut is to our beloved whitetail junkies. So, we did some research to find out which MLB players share our passion. Here are some famous ballers both past and present that trade their pin stripes for camo the first chance they get. Maybe, just maybe, this will help all you hardcore killers connect with the stat-loving baseball geek in your life.
