Ole Miss pitcher Ryan Rolison was drafted by the Colorado Rockies with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. It's was a night of extreme highs and lows for the star pitcher.
The high was obviously getting drafted in the first round. However, shortly after he was drafted, an old tweet of Rolison's was dug up by the internet, and it wasn't pretty.
Rolison, who would have been 15 at the time, tweeted about Barack Obama's re-election.
Here's what he said: "Well we have one hope left… if someone shoots him during his speech."
He then deleted the tweet, but not before a screenshot could be taken.
During an interview with The Athletic, Rolison expressed his regret for the tweet.
"It was in 2012 and it was a stupid tweet," he said. "It was immature of me. I had no idea what I was talking about."
