The team's ERA that year was 3.78, third in the National League, and Hunt's at 3.96 was close to the team average. Since Crosley Field was a hitter's park that year, the pitching was even stronger than it seemed.
Hunt is one of only 35 major league players (as of 2007) born in Utah, and became only the 15th player to die in the state. A star baseball and basketball player in high school, he went to Brigham Young University on a baseball and basketball scholarship.
