Instead, he absolutely buried himself.
Most notably, Huff doubled down on his assertion that Alyssa Nakken, the Giants assistant who is the first full-time female coach in baseball history, doesn't deserve her job.
“I don’t believe a woman should be in men’s pro sports,” Huff declared.
Somehow, it got worse.
“There’s so many more people, especially men who grind it out who deserve that spot more than she does. But I also don’t believe that men belong in women’s college sports or sports in general, either.”
“Why would they want to be? I wouldn’t want to coach women in sports.” Huff said, laughing. “Women are tough enough to deal with anyway.”
When I listened back to the interview, which I was recoding with my iPhone, I can actually hear myself cringe. Multiple times.
"Obviously, that was a wrong choice of words."
“Let’s get over and kidnap about 10 each. We can bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things….”
Huff added a devil emoji as a final embellishment.
“I find this whole thing very hypocritical coming from a man who has had his share of real controversy for pushing his wife for which he had to a break from the Giants and issue a formal apology.”
