Former Major League Baseball World Series Champion Aubrey Huff slammed cancel culture in a new interview with Aubrey Huff.
Huff also went on to criticize the League’s decision to pull the MLB all-star game out of Atlanta in response to the state’s decision to try and crack down on voter fraud.
As The Daily Wire reports:
HUFF: When I played, I intentionally stayed off social media. I didn’t have one. I didn’t let my conservative values out. Because you’re going to alienate half your fan base right out of the gate. So I don’t understand why athletes do that in the first place.
I didn’t really hear much about it (All-Star Game) until recently. I had to dig more into it. And from the outside looking in, the instant thinking was the players were blindsided. Had to have been. And what most people don’t know – and I get this question on social media from fans all the time – How many players are conservative in Major League Baseball? 80%. Easy. Even the guys from Venezuela and Puerto Rico. They’re trying to escape all this communism and all this bull****. So, they’re conservative as well…
From what they told me, this was a players union decision. So I called a few random players that I still talk to. One of these is a superstar. And he tells me ‘We are f****** hot. We are pissed’. He tells me that the players union, Tony Clark, was getting heat about moving the game out of Georgia. I guess the players union got a hold of Major League Baseball without consulting the players first.
Word has it, there were two or three huge companies that pump in hundreds of millions of dollars in sponsorship deals to Major League Baseball every single year. They were threatening that if MLB does not leave Georgia, they’re pulling out. And this player told me that each one of these companies are worth over $350 million. So, we’re looking at billions of dollars in money. So, Rob Manfred made the decision without consulting anybody. MLB is out of there.
