Veteran utility man Aubrey Huff retires, accepts Pac-12 broadcasting job


Aubrey Lewis Huff III made his Major League debut back on August 2nd, 2000 with the Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays and has went on to have himself a great career.

He was once one of the leagues most powerful hitters. The veteran utility man had some of the best years of his career with the Tampa Bay Rays as he’s put up numbers like 34-107, 29-104 and 22-92. Huff has only reached 30 plus home runs one other time in his career since the 34 he launched in 2003.

The 37 year old won Silver Slugger and Edgar Martinez honors in 2008 while with the Baltimore Orioles then won two World Series championships with the San Francisco Giants from 2010-2012.

2012 was the last year that Aubrey played in.

Now according to Chris Cotillo on Twitter, Huff will officially call it a career and has accepted a broadcasting job with the Pac-12 Network.

Huff will begin his broadcasting career in February and from the sounds of things, he’s very happy and excited about the new chapter of his life.

Congratulations to Aubrey Huff on a great career and a new beginning.
