  JockBio: Torii Hunter Biography
Torii marveled at Jackson's sprinter's speed, raw power and impeccable instincts—and thrilled with the rest of the country as he became a star for the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Royals in the 1980s.
Torii was slowed early in the season by a short stint on the DL, but Minnesota played great without him, posting a nine-game winning streak in mid-May to move their record to 22-13.
Torii's range is unmatched—a product of his tremendous speed and an uncanny, crack-of-the-bat sense of where he needs to be when a hard-hit baseball returns to earth.

 Torii - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A torii (Japanese: 鳥居) is a traditional Japanese gate commonly found at the entry to a Shinto shrine.
In this, the sun goddess Amaterasu became extremely annoyed with her prankster brother, so she hid herself in a cave and sealed the entrance with a rock, causing an eclipse.
The torii is also the symbol of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division which is nicknamed Rakkasans (Japanese for falling umbrellas).

There is a famous set of torii near Kyoto at the Fushimi Inari Shrine that are on our "to-do list" for our next trip to Japan.
The color, the concept of a path of gates, and from what I expect from both to be a similar (though not identical, due to the difference in the environments of mid-town Manhattan and a small town in Japan) experience tie these together for me, whether I get to them or not.
