Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader saw his reputation take a massive hit during the MLB All-Star Game Tuesday night when some of his offensive tweets from years ago began surfacing. Major League Baseball released a statement on Wednesday addressing Hader’s tweets, and commissioner Rob Manfred said the left-hander took the “necessary step of expressing remorse” but that he will be required to attend sensitivity training. The Brewers also weighed in, condemning Hader’s tweets while saying they do not believe they are representative of the 24-year-old’s personal beliefs. – TO
