    Barrier broken: Prospect shares that he's gay
    Brewers' Denson comes out in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article

    [​IMG]

    By Doug Miller / MLB.com |
    David Denson, a first baseman/outfielder for the Brewers' Rookie-level affiliate in Helena, Mont., revealed that he is gay on Saturday night in a story that appeared overnight in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    "Talking with my teammates, they gave me the confidence I needed, coming out to them," Denson told Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel. "They said, 'You're still our teammate. You're still our brother. We kind of had an idea, but your sexuality has nothing to do with your ability. You're still a ballplayer at the end of the day. We don't treat you any different. We've got your back.'

    "That was a giant relief for me. I never wanted to feel like I was forcing it on them. It just happened. The outcome was amazing. It was nice to know my teammates see me for who I am, not my sexuality."

    Denson becomes the first active player affiliated with a Major League organization to come out publicly. Late Major Leaguer Glenn Burke's homosexuality was revealed to the public in an Inside Sports magazine article after he retired from baseball in 1982, and current MLB Ambassador of Inclusion Billy Bean, who played in the big leagues from 1987-95, also came out after retirement.

    "David is a highly respected member of the Milwaukee Brewers family, and he is a very courageous young man," said Brewers GM Doug Melvin in a statement released Sunday morning. "Our goal for David is to help develop him into a Major League player, just as it is for any player in our system, and we will continue to support him in every way as he chases that dream."

    Denson, who is the Brewers' 27th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.com, was selected by the Brewers in the 15th round of the 2013 MLB Draft out of South Hills High School in West Covina, Calif. A left-handed hitter, he is batting .245 with four homers and 18 RBIs in 42 games for Helena after a 24-game stint for low Class A Wisconsin.

    He's batting .245 in Single A. Coming out was a good career move.

    There was another gay ball player who "came out" a couple weeks ago. Don't know who but he's white and had kinda a reddish beard.

    Good luck to him but I doubt coming out in Helena was the wisest choice.

    If he was a catcher, John could ask him, "how many balls have you taken on the chin?"

    Married rugby league player Keegan Hirst has come out as gay, making him the first openly homosexual Englishman in the sport.

    The 27-year-old prop has spoken of the moment he told his wife why they could no longer be together.

    Hirst, captain of West Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs, said the relief of finally coming out felt like 'letting out a long breath that I’ve held in for a long time'.

    Married rugby league player Keegan Hirst has come out as gay, making him the first openly homosexual British in the sport

    Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, the father-of-two said he felt like he was too 'macho' to be gay, but came to realise that he had been attracted to men since he was 15.

    He revealed that his wife had been blaming herself for their split and he felt he had no option but to tell her the real reason he could no longer be her husband.

    Hirst said: 'She blamed herself when we separated but I knew she’d done nothing wrong. I couldn’t bear it any more, the guilt of it all, of her not knowing why I left. It was eating me up.

    'She didn’t say anything at first. I explained why and how I felt, it was very emotional. We were both in tears.

    'It was incredibly tough, but for me it was a weird situation because it also felt liberating.'


    The parents have told their children, aged seven and two, that they have split up but have not explained the full reasons why as of yet.

    Perfect sport for a gay man. Plenty of bats and balls, pitchers still try to use the spitter, many of the rookies making the majors are five tool players.

    Strangely, I actually kinda like you. Duh, not sexually obviously but you are pretty funny and despite your crazy opinions I get the feeling you're not a bad guy.
    Anyway- it's a gay sports guy thread- I had to post that hot man.

    A gay guy has no more business being in a men's locker room than I have being in a women's. That is, none, because I like women and would want to bone every one of them. Men are like that. Gays don't have any super power that makes them not be inappropriately turned on, they're men. Gay or straight, that's how we are.

    It's science.
