On Saturday, the Los Angeles Angels drafted the son of one of the best center fielders in the past two decades.

The Halos selected Torii Hunter Jr. in the 23rd round of the MLB draft. His father, a five-time All-Star and nine-time Gold Glove winner, announced the selection:

The younger Hunter just completed his junior season as a wide receiver for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team. He played in 13 games while reeling in 363 yards and two touchdowns for the Irish.

On the baseball diamond, however, Hunter didn’t see as much playing time, nor did he put up impressive numbers. He appeared in 19 games but batted .182 while recording only two hits, according to Notre Dame’s athletics website.

Hunter was the second Notre Dame player taken in the MLB draft. The Toronto Blue Jays selected Cavan Biggio, the son of former All-Star Craig Biggio, in the fifth round.

Notre Dame’s Twitter account congratulated Hunter on Saturday:

While this is a big moment for Hunter, his stats show he’s not ready to take on baseball. He’ll be a go-to receiver for the Irish football team next year and may have a brighter immediate future on the gridiron than in the outfield.
