Each of them had racist and/or homophobic posts from their social media past dragged into the light.
Turner was the latest to apologize. He released a statement yesterday and then spoke to the cameras Tuesday in Washington.
Turner went on to talk about the enjoyment he got from recently participating in the Major League Baseball's anti-bullying initiatives and the lessons he has learned.

Turner's Washington Nationals teammate went in depth on Twitter with his thoughts about the recent spate of social media ugliness that has come to light in his league.
