Former Major League Baseball world champion Aubrey Huff is getting banned from his 10-year World Series reunion for making patriotic and off-the-cuff Twitter posts that triggered the organization.
“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 San Francisco Giants announced on Monday.
“While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision,” the Giants said in a follow-up statement issued to The Athletic.
Huff is rather peeved that he is being excluded from the reunion of a team that he was instrumential in helping win a World Series championship.
“Quite frankly, shocked. Disappointed. If it wasn’t for me, they wouldn’t be having a reunion,” Huff said. “But if they want to stick with their politically correct, progressive bulls**t, that’s fine.”
He credits his jovial demeanor for bringing levity to the clubhouse and keeping spirits high as the Giants reached the peak of the baseball world in 2010.
“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.
One of the posts that has Huff in hot water with the Giants was his criticism of the organization hiring a female coach earlier this year:

Huff’s patriotic views have gotten him into hot water in the past. He was attacked by a “woke” anchor at ESPN for claiming that he would teach his children about the necessity of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
Wrong. If a man is successful, & keeps himself in great shape he is actually more appealing to younger women. Mens sexual market value is actually peaking a 40-55. Women’s SMV is 21-27. High value older men can continue to upgrade to a younger woman, never needing to settle. 💪 https://t.co/9iCM8xLIY2

I was teaching my kids how 2 shoot guns responsibly. I did make a political opinion but at no time did I threaten anyone’s life. You & ur colleagues @espn @Disney create more political & racial divide everyday. See how you played the race & politics card here to fit ur narrative? https://t.co/6uoExntisW

As a result of Huff talking about his constitutional pro-gun beliefs and sharing them with his children, a digital lynch mob attempted to report him to FBI and CPS to have jackboots kidnap his children from him.
For all you that reported me to the FBI, and Twitter I’m happy to report I flew today & got to my destination with zero security problems. Also had 100’s of emails from @Twitter that say I violated zero of twitter’s posting rules. Thanks for all your concern! Happy Thanksgiving pic.twitter.com/tTSHivG7Ps

This is the world we live in today. Teaching your children how to safely handle and shoot a gun at a legal gun range is now grounds for having your children taken away from you. 🙄 @RationalMale @WatchChad @GrahamAllen_1 https://t.co/fXiWbWMkkX

Regardless of how he is attacked by the politically-correct sports ecosystem, Huff has more fans than ever before he because he stood strong with his President under the fire.
Want to thank all you patriotic Americans that have reached out to me the last couple days in support of my "controversial post." It's people like you that make this country strong! And to all you amazing fathers out there raising strong girls, and brave young men, I salute you! pic.twitter.com/I5HLy2yQLn

Because of his boldness in standing for President Trump, Huff is probably more popular at the present time than he was when he was a professional athlete.
Conservative-Friendly Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: First Woman to Play in Power Five College Football Game a “Make-A-Wish” Publicity Stunt
The voice of reason.
Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN and Fox Sports writer and current OutKick columnist, did not hold back in his criticism of the Sarah Fuller publicity stunt and the subsequent reaction that called her a “hero” and a “trailblazer.”
Sarah Fuller is a goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team. But Vanderbilt’s football team, already having a dreadful enough of a season as it is, at one point did not have a kicker going into Saturday’s contest against Missouri—because of, you guessed it, COVID-19. So they turned to Fuller and added her to the roster, thus making her the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. (Power Five refers to the sport’s five major conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Vanderbilt is an SEC team.)
Her only appearance in the game—which Vanderbilt lost 41-0—featured her squib kicking the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line at the beginning of the second half and dashing to the sideline. That’s it.
So it was only a matter of time before Whitlock, who does not describe himself as conservative but is clearly conservative-friendly, bashed the virtue-signaling surrounding Fuller’s appearance.
“Sarah Fuller briefly made football socially acceptable for America’s most ardent virtue-signalers. That was her primary accomplishment, pleasing Make A Wish America,” Whitlock wrote. “I don’t believe she played football. She scored a point in the culture war.”
Whitlock acknowledges that Fuller is an elite athlete, given that she plays goalie for a Division 1 soccer team which just won its conference championship last week and is heading for the NCAA Tournament in the spring, but says that putting her in this situation only diminishes female athletes.
“I don’t blame Sarah Fuller. She’s an accomplished, high-level Division 1 athlete. She’s a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. She’s been baited into believing competing against men is her North star. Maybe it is. It shouldn’t be,” he wrote.
He added: “Sarah Fuller is an elite soccer player. She’s a terrible football player, arguably the worst to ever take the field in the SEC. The announcers during the game said [Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason] wasn’t comfortable using her [to] kick field goals unless they were inside the 15-yard line. There were pictures of her warming up in pregame kicking 14-yard field goals. Her athleticism does not need to be validated by competing against men in any capacity, let alone in a sport that is not her specialty.”
Whitlock also attacked “culture warriors” for hailing Fuller as “Jackie Robinson 2.0” and spending tons of money to prop up women as the athletic equals of men.
“There’s a lot of money being spent to create the illusion that women can and should be playing football against men. The people spending the money hate football. It epitomizes ‘toxic masculinity’… except when women are on the field. Football should also be shuttered because of the head trauma dangers… unless women are playing. Oh, and during this COVID pandemic, it’s irresponsible for these Power 5 schools to exploit these college athletes… unless there’s a woman playing.”
Read Whitlock’s entire op-ed here. Thank God the sports writing world has at least one voice who can speak the truth like this. As someone who used to write about sports myself, I’m well aware that there are far too few Whitlocks in the profession.
