Major League Baseball star Josh Hader apologizes for racist, homophobic tweets

The 24-year-old said Tuesday night after the All-Star Game that he was immature at age 17 when several of the tweets were posted. "I'm deeply sorry for what I've said and what's been going on, and like I said, it doesn't reflect any of my beliefs going on now". "And, like I said, it doesn't reflect any of my beliefs going on". "There's no excuse for what was said".

"It was something that happened when I was 17 years old", Hader said after the game. I know Hader, I know he's a great guy, he's a great teammate. "I really don't know what all is out there".

Hader also reportedly tweeted a series of sexist and mysognnist tweets that were screenshotted prior to his account being switched to private.

Before the game even ended, Hader made his tweets protected. He said his fellow Brewers "shouldn't be involved in it", and that he's ready to face any punishment Major League Baseball deems appropriate for vilely insensitive tweets from his teenage years.

Hader said he had not spoken to family members and when asked if that would be a hard conversation responded: 'I was young, immature and stupid.

Hader, a native of Millersville, Maryland, cited his youth for sentiments shared in the tweets. "As a child, I was immature, and I obviously said some things that were inexcusable".

MLB Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem said he had talked to Hader, and the league is expected to issue a statement on the matter in the coming days. "You can't, there's no excuse for what was said".

Some members of Josh Hader's family, wearing his All-Star replica jersey, have taken them off and been given generic jerseys without his name on the back.

Fellow Brewers All-Star Lorenzo Cain addressed reporters postgame and revealed that, by that time, he had spoken with Hader. Basically, we're going to move on from this. "He's a great teammate, I'm fine, everybody will be OK".

The night didn't go well for Hader on the mound either.

Then, as the former Orioles draft pick and current Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher exited the game and returned to the clubhouse, he realized the three-run home run he allowed to Jean Segura would be the least of his problems.
