Giants right to exclude Aubrey Huff from 2010 World Series celebration

Given some of his tweets this year alone, it’s hard to blame them.

There was the one where he suggested kidnapping Iranian women and bringing them to the United States, saying they’d be so grateful they’d “fan us and feed us grapes.” There was the one where he expressed hope that protesters would be shot. There was the one where he said it was “way harder” to be a baseball player than a teacher. There were the many, many ones in which he demeaned women and said they were meant to be subservient to men.

And in what was probably the final straw for the Giants, he criticized their hiring of Alyssa Nakken, baseball’s first female coach, and implied it was a stunt.

“Couldn’t imagine taking baseball instruction from an ex female softball player,” Huff said, followed by the eye-roll emoji.
