An American baseball player has openly revealed that he is gay.
Anderson Comas (23), a minor league player for the Chicago White Sox of the United States, came out through his social media.
“Being a professional baseball player is the best thing that ever happened to me,” Comas said. “I wanted to tell people who say gay people can’t do anything in their lives. Look at me. I’m gay. And I’m a professional athlete. I will not stop going out for you.” 슬롯사이트
Comas signed with the White Sox in July 2016. He was a free agent at the time. He started his career as an outfielder, but switched to pitching ahead of last season. Last year he appeared in 11 games for the Arizona Complex League rookie-level team, posting a 6.35 earned run average in one win.
White Sox head coach Chris Getz, who is in charge of player development, released a statement on Comas’ coming out. “With what Comas wrote today, we’ll all be proud of him. I think he’ll be more comfortable revealing a very important personal part of his life,” he said.
