Josh Hader, pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers, apologized after Tuesday night's MLB All-Star game for homophobic and racist tweets that resurfaced during the game. Hader's tweets, which surfaced during his All-Star Game appearance, featured language that was racist, homophobic and sexist.

"There's no excuse for what was said", Hader said, according to USA Today. "I'm deeply sorry for what I've said, and it doesn't reflect any of my beliefs going on now".

It will certainly be interesting to hear MLB's response, and hopefully it's not just that Hader was a dumb 17-year-old. "As a child, I was immature, and I obviously said some things that were inexcusable. But that doesn't reflect on who I am as a person today".

"You know it was something that happened when I was 17 years old". He said Major League Baseball would not have any comment before Wednesday.

"This is not who I am and will use this as an opportunity to better myself".

I have apologiszed personally to Jason Motte, but also need to apologize to the Braves organization and their fans, and most importantly, to the LGBTQ community for the lack of respect I displayed last night. "There is no excuse for what is said".

"I'm sure there were some lyrics, rap lyrics, being tweeted", Hader told reporters.

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.

'We've all said insane stuff growing up, even when we're 17, 18 years old, ' Cain said.

According to ESPN, Lorenzo Cain, a black Brewers player who also made the National League All-Star team, called Hader a "great guy" and "a great teammate". Cain said he did not ask for an apology and simply wanted to understand the situation before speaking with reporters. It won't happen again. I'm ready for any consequences for what happened seven years ago. "I really don't know exactly what all's out there".

"We move on from is what it is".

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. The guy I know, he's a great guy.
