Daniel Hudson's seemingly harmless tweet about his baseball card picture that blew up across the internet Monday really was, well, harmless. The Diamondbacks right-hander, who is expected to miss much of the season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery after tearing a ligament in his arm last June, took to Twitter on Sunday after he opened some fan mail that included a new Topps baseball card for an autograph. The problem: The picture Topps selected for his 2013 card is from almost immediately after his injury last year, which was suffered during a game in Atlanta. Thank @toppscards for using a close up of me right after my elbow blew out! Card will be around forever as areminder! twitter.comDHuddy41statu Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) March 24, 2013 The tweet went viral, with both FOXSports.com and Yahoo documenting his reaction, and when Hudson was made aware of this unexpected media coverage, he quickly apologized to Topps while making it clear that he wasn't too serious about the original criticism. @naterdude: @dhuddy41 Look you made front page on Yahoo! twitter.comnaterdudestat lol sorry @toppscards Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) March 25, 2013 Fortunately, Topps wasn't offended. The company responded to Hudson's initial tweet via its official Twitter account, both offering its supporting and inviting Hudson and Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler -- a well-known baseball card aficionado -- to the company's corporate office in New York City. @dhuddy41 stay strong, we are big fans! Stop by with @bradziegler when in NYC? HardWorkPaysOff! Topps Company (@toppscards) March 25, 2013 While Hudson has not yet responded to the invitation, all's well that ends well.
