Former Baltimore Oriole Aubrey Huff will retire from baseball and pursue a career in broadcasting, according to a report from MLB Daily Dish.

Huff played for the Birds from 2007-2009, including a 32 homer, 108 RBI season in 2008 where he won his only career Silver Slugger award. Huff was traded to the Detroit Tigers in 2009 for pitching prospect Brett Jacobson. His tenure in Charm City was marred by an appearance on the “Bubba The Love Sponge” radio show on SiriusXM where he described Baltimore as a “horse-s**t town“.

Huff went on to win two World Series titles as a member of the San Francisco Giants. He finishes his career as a .278 hitter over 13 seasons with 242 home runs and 904 RBI. Huff last played for the Giants in 2012. According to the report, he will move into a career as a baseball analyst for Pac-12 Networks.
