After winning two World Series championships and belting a career 242 home runs, former Giant Aubrey Huff told The Chronicle's Henry Schulman that he's "pretty much retired."

The 36-year-old battled knee and back issues as well as an anxiety disorder over the past two seasons, and has "no regrets" about not playing anymore.

“I love it. I’m having a great time with my wife and kids," he told Schulman by phone. "I don’t even have an itch to pick up a baseball bat. I wondered if I’d feel that desire when everybody reported to spring training, but I didn’t.”

Huff had a batting average of .290 with 26 home runs and 86 RBI in 2010, finishing seventh in National League MVP voting -- the highest appearance of his career. He also recorded 8 RBI in the 2010 postseason including a home run in Game 4 of the World Series, helping the Giants obtain their first World Series championship in San Francisco history.
