LOS ANGELES - Aubrey Huff was always viewed as a team player during his time in San Francisco, so it was no suprise when he was willing to move to Right Field for the team's opening series in Los Angeles. Teammates were with the Huff Family today, offering their condolences after the tragic death of the 10 year major leaguer.
"He was one of my closest friends in the game, and he will be sorely missed." Former teammate Pat Burrell said to reporters. "I've known him since colege, and he was a true teammate."
The team was announcing today when the public service would be.
"We are all still in shock." a team spokesman said. "We know that Nate (Schierholtz) can handle the job in right while Cody (Ross) is still out, but nobody can replace his bat or his thong in our lineup and our locker room."
Aubrey Huff's rally thong could not be reached for comment. A person close to the thong said she was inconsolable upon hearing the news.
