MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was awarded the Trevor Hoffman National League Reliever of the Year Award on Saturday, Oct. 27.
The Brewers left hander had a 2.43 ERA with 143 strikeouts in just 81 1/3 innings.
This season, Hader faced nationwide criticism after racist, sexist and homophobic tweets surfaced on the day of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
Hader apologized to the team and the city for the hateful messages. After the incident, Hader received a warm ovation by fans after making his return to Miller Park.
