The MLB’s San Francisco Giants are set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2010 World Series championship, but one of their key players has been excluded from the festivities due to his conservative Twitter posts.
The Giants made the announcement to bar first basemen Aubrey Huff in a statement given to The Athletic, reading, “Earlier this month, we reached out to Aubrey Huff to let him know that he will not be included in the upcoming 2010 World Series Championship reunion. Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization. While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”
The Athletic also talked with Huff, who responded by saying, “Quite frankly, shocked. Disappointed. If it wasn’t for me, they wouldn’t be having a reunion. But if they want to stick with their politically correct, progressive (expletive), that’s fine.”
