MLB All-Star Josh Hader apologizes for history of racist tweets

first_img Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPatrick Smith/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — MLB pitcher Josh Hader apologized following Tuesday night’s All-Star Game after a number of offensive old tweets from his account surfaced earlier in the evening.Hader, who pitches for the Milwaukee Brewers, tweeted various racist, misogynist and homophobic tweets in 2011 and 2012. The tweets resurfaced on Tuesday and were shared widely online. The 24-year-old was 17 and 18 years old at the time of many of the tweets. All of the tweets circulating online appear to have come before he was drafted to the majors in June 2012.“As a child I was immature and obviously I said some stuff that was inexcusable,” Hader told reporters in the locker room after the game. “That doesn’t reflect on who I am as a person today.“There’s no excuse for what was said and, ya know, I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve said,” he added.At least one tweet included the N-word, while another said, “I hate gay people.” Hader’s account is now verified, though it wasn’t at the time.The pitcher told reporters after the game he was not aware of the old tweets resurfacing before taking the field, and only found out when he returned to the locker room and his “phone was blowing up” with messages from people.Hader’s name was in the top-2 trending topics on Twitter throughout Tuesday night, often trailing only the hashtag for the game itself.He said he didn’t know the context of the tweets, didn’t remember specifics and hadn’t even seen them yet when speaking to reporters.“I’m sure there were some lyrics, rap lyrics, being tweeted,” Hader told reporters. “I really don’t know what all is out there.”“I was just trying to understand the situation. … That’s one of the reasons I didn’t want social media,” Milwaukee Brewers outfielder and teammate Lorenzo Cain said. “We always get in trouble for things you said when you were younger. We’ll move on from it.”Hader struggled in the All-Star Game, his first as a player, giving up three runs and four hits in 0.1 inning. He has a 1.50 ERA and seven saves during the regular season.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

So I’ve accumulated a smattering of interesting ones, especially for the sake of experimenting in the studio and, sometimes, to mix it up on stage. . . . I also really have a deep appreciation for builders that innovate and strive for aesthetic beauty and cool sounds.”Trey Anastasio Talks Languedoc Guitars On New Episode Of Tom Marshall’s PodcastOne item for sale that many Phish fans are sure to be excited about is a guitar built by Paul Languedoc, Phish’s longtime luthier, as the guitars already are rare (Reverb.com has only had one other Languedoc posted on its marketplace). Gordon will be selling his Paul Languedoc G2 6 String Hollowbody Electric Guitar, which is constructed with a spruce top for a more acoustic tone. As Gordon said of the guitar, “I’ve had it since 2001 and played it — or had people play it —on most of my solo albums and on albums with Leo Kottke, just in little moments. . . . I love how Paul makes his own tools even, then uses such an incredible craftsmanship to make guitars that are like art pieces. Plus there’s that undeniable tone.”As noted in the press release, other instruments of Gordon that will be going up for sale include:A Turner Renaissance Electric Hollowbody Bass that was used largely in the studio and served as Gordon’s only fretless for many years.A Lakland Hollowbody Deluxe Electric 4 String Bass used for many songs on Sixty Six Steps, the second studio album from Gordon and Leo Kottke. According to Gordon, the Lakland is “an amazing example of a retro sound with modern reliability.”A 1960’s Danelectro Silvertone 1448 that Gordon “needed to have” after playing a similar guitar in Marco Benevento’s living room.The Official Mike Gordon Reverb Shop will stock these instruments this Thursday at 11 am (EST).

first_imgOn Sunday, October 21st, Willie Nelson‘s traveling Outlaw Music Festival made its way to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles for the final stop on its lengthy 2018 schedule. The day’s schedule featured performances by Nelson as well as Phil Lesh & Friends, Sturgill Simpson, Lukas Nelson + Promise of the Real, Margo Price, and Particle Kid.This special Outlaw Music Festival stop marked the event’s first outing on the west coast, so the addition of a new artist to the Outlaw stable, California musical heavyweight Phil Lesh of Grateful Dead fame, served as an appropriate inclusion. Following Particle Kid, Lukas Nelson, Margo Price, and Sturgill Simpson’s sets, Lesh took the stage with his “Friends” of the day—Jackie Greene, Jason Crosby, Nathan Graham, and Cris Jacobs—for the evening’s penultimate set. Phil’s nine-song set featured a spirited mix of Dead favorites including “Althea”, “New Minglewood Blues”, “Brown-Eyed Women”, “Candyman”, “China Cat Sunflower”, “Shakedown Street”, “Viola Lee Blues”, and “Sugaree”. For their final song, Phil Lesh & Friends welcomed Margo Price to the stage to help them through “Turn On Your Love Light”.Following Phil’s set, Willie Nelson & Family closed out the show with a headlining set of their own featuring, among other highlights, a rendition of Larry Davis– and Joseph Wade Scott-penned classic “Texas Flood” (popularized by Stevie Ray Vaughan) with the Lone Star flag emblazoned across the backdrop of the stage. He also welcomed out Lesh and Price at the tail end of the set to add vocals to “I Saw The Light”, “I’ll Fly Away”, and “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”.You can watch a selection of videos from Outlaw Music Festival’s stop at the Hollywood Bowl below.
