The Star Tribune's LaValle E. Neal notes that it will be interesting to see if Hunter's past comes into play as the league decides if it will suspend him.

Hunter was suspended for four games in 2010 after he tossed a bag of baseballs onto the field following his ejection over a strike three call from home plate umpire Ron Kulpa.

Here are a couple of Hunter's other infamous moments.
