Football has Micheal Sam. Basketball has Jason Collins. Baseball has…who? Exactly. Baseball is really the last sport to have an openly gay player. Players and managers have said that baseball is ready for this and that they wouldn’t mind a gay teammate in the locker room. I don’t know when we will have an openly gay player in the admittedly more conservative game of baseball, but I am very happy with the work MLB is doing to help facilitate that. Billy Bean (MLB’s Ambassador for Inclusion) and Brian Cashman (Yankees’ GM) recently partnered together to visit a social services agency and met with LGBTQ individuals to chat, talk baseball, and learn. This is really cool.

I love baseball more than I love Churro Dogs and I'm cooler than A-Rod wearing Ray Bans.
