Anderson Comas, an outfielder for the Chicago White Sox, shocked the baseball world by revealing that he is gay. On his Instagram account he gave the announcement and warned: “If you are homophobic this post may not be for you or maybe it is so you can see that we all matter and we are all the same.”
The publication has almost 22,000 “Likes” and thousands of messages of support for the 23-year-old.
He was born on February 10, 2000 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He currently lives in the United States, where he plays in the minor leagues for the Chicago-based team.
To the letter published by the baseball player, they responded: “We are very proud of you”.
In addition Chris Getz, secretary of the general manager of the franchise, expressed through a statement: “I was very pleased that he felt comfortable sharing it with us. I was also happy with the reaction throughout the organization, which, as expected, was to support, help and congratulate a colleague”.
He was joined by MLB vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion, Billy Bean, who thanked the White Sox for giving the Dominican “an environment of acceptance and inclusion that allows him to pursue his dream of becoming a major leaguer while remaining true to his true and authentic self.”
