Brewers closer Josh Hader has been the subject of much criticism, after some tweets he posted in the past recently surfaced.
The tweets were racist and homophobic in nature, which, obviously, did not sit well with a number of fans.
Apparently, though, Brewers fans have remained supportive of Hader, or at least the ones at Miller Park for Saturday’s game against the Dodgers. Hader entered the game in the seventh inning, tasked with recording six outs. Fans showered him with praise when he took the mound, giving him a standing ovation, which you can watch in the video clip below.
Hader seemed to feed off the energy, striking out the side in the seventh, and getting all three outs in the eighth.
