San Francisco Giants veteran Aubrey Huff is taking some time to get treatment for his anxiety issues, but too the time on Friday to release a statement to the fans, letting them know how much he appreciates their patience and understanding at a time like this.
"Thank you to the fans, media and Giants organization for the outpouring of support during this very difficult week. I'm especially grateful for the texts and calls from my teammates, who are like my brothers and have let me know they're here for me.
My goal is to get back on the field as soon as possible. To do that, I have to focus completely on getting well. I know I'm in a public job, and I've been one of the more open guys. But sometimes you have to pull back and work on things in private. This is one of those times.
I appreciate your understanding and patience.''
Best of luck to Mr. Huff and a speedy recovery as well.
