Watch: Josh Hader loudly booed in first road appearance since scandal

Josh Hader

Josh Hader got a very different reception on the road from the one that he received at home less than a week ago.

The Milwaukee Brewers reliever pitched Thursday against the San Francisco Giants in what was his first road appearance since old tweets of his containing homophobic and racist content emerged during the All-Star break. As Hader entered the contest, he heard loud boos from the Giants faithful. Here is video of the scene, per Sam Hustis of KNBR.

Hader went on to pitch 1.1 scoreless innings against the Giants to successfully preserve a 2-2 tie. In a decision that was criticized by many, he was given a raucous ovation by Brewers fans in Milwaukee on Saturday when he was made his first overall appearance on the mound since the scandal.

The 24-year-old Hader has already gone above and beyond in his apologies for the offensive tweets. Regardless however, he is quickly realizing that it will still be a long time before he lives them down in the eyes of the majority.
