The San Francisco Giants decided to snub former first baseman Aubrey Huff from its 2010 World Series-winning team reunion planned for this summer because of his social media posts.
Huff, 43, played for the Giants in 2010 when the team won the World Series. He batted .294 with a home run and four RBI in the series against the Texas Rangers. He was also a part of the 2012 championship team.

“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,” the Giants said in a statement, according to ESPN. “While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”
Huff offered his own statement on Twitter in response to the Giants’ decision to snub him. He acknowledged he had a meeting with Giants CEO Larry Baer and said that he was not invited to the ceremony because of his support for President Trump and his “locker room humor.”
