Former San Francisco Giants player Aubrey Huff on Tuesday claimed that team management had informed him he was not invited to a reunion and celebration of the 2010 Giants team that won the World Series over his support for Trump.
Huff in a tweeted statement said Giants CEO Larry Baer told him that the team’s decision was based on his “Twitter posts” and his “political support of Donald Trump.”
“My locker room humor on Twitter is meant to be satirical, and sarcastic. And it was that type of humor that loosened up the clubhouse in 2010 for our charge at the World Series,” Huff said.
“They loved it then, and it hasn’t changed. That’s not the issue. It’s politics,” he added. In the tweet, Huff tagged President Trump and Major League Baseball.
