Last night, a hacker found his or her way into the social media accounts of at least nine different Major League Baseball Teams, posting status updates and tweets that ranged from the crude to the (admittedly) hilarious. Curse you, illegal criminal of cyberspace, for making me laugh!

All teams have since deleted the offending posts. The Chicago Cubs even followed up with the tweet: "For the record, the #Cubs are big fans of Bill Murray. #NotHacked."

The hacker is still at large (watch out, NHL!)

Update: Deadspin reports that the MLB Facebook and Twitter accounts were not hacked, but were instead at the mercy of a rogue employee working for the "Advanced Media" arm of the MLB (which collectively manages all its teams' online presence).

The posts may have been an inside joke and not meant for public eyes, but Deadspin also notes that employees working for the social media arm of the MLB are grievously underpaid.

Michael Sam made waves the other year when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams as the first openly gay NFL player. Today, amid talks that the supreme court will take a closer look at the constitutional grounds for gay marriage, Sam posted this photo on Instagram proposing to his long-time boyfriend Vito Cammisano.

Herrera's tweet translated:

"He asked me for a picture but I don't know who he is or if he has won anything. Even so, I think I made this kid's day."
