There are times in life when one must stare fear in the face and give it a big fat kiss.

This was one of those times for Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter. Justin Verlander dared his teammate to pucker up and lay one on the gator, and Hunter came through in the clutch. However, Hunter captioned the photo "#stillfearit," so there remains a healthy respect for the animal. 

By the look on Verlander's face, there is no better way to break up the monotony of spring training.
