Milwaukee Brewers minor leaguer David Denson is the first openly gay active pro baseball player affiliated with an MLB club.
Denson's announcement was first reported in a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story Sunday morning.
Denson recalls his teammates telling him: "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."
