Justin Verlander, the star pitcher and once-MVP for the Detroit Tigers says that a gay teammate wouldn’t bother him.
When asked, he said: “Absolutely.” “Wouldn’t mind.”
“I don’t think one of our players would be scared to come out. We got 25 guys, it’s a family, and our goal is to win a World Series. What your sexual orientation is, I don’t see how that affects the ultimate goal of our family.”
