Iowa senior outfielder Kris Goodman used the power of Twitter to score a wood bat from Minnesota Twin, Torii Hunter.

Ask and you shall receive.

During batting practice Tuesday at the Minnesota Twins' indoor batting facility at Target Field, Iowa baseball's Kris Goodman found a wood bat owned by veteran outfielder and five-time all star, Torii Hunter.

Using the power of Twitter, the senior outfielder sent a tweet to Hunter saying how cool the bat was and asked if he could have it. To Goodman's surprise, the nine-time Gold Glove winner and two-time Silver Slugger let Goodman keep his professional maple-wood model.

Pretty sweet gift for Goodman and the Hawkeyes as they prepare to face Ohio State at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the first round of the conference tournament.
