There is a gay major league baseball player. The public does not know his name. He exists, though, and his world is so much different than one year ago, according to Yahoo Sports.



Back then, there was actually a question of whether athletes would accept a gay player, whether fans would rebel against a man on account of his sexuality.

After Jason Collins and Michael Sam and the latest brave man to declare his truth in public, Derrick Gordon, it all seems silly, that sports – a place of transformative cultural change where the only necessary credential is talent – would reject someone on account of something so inconsequential to his ability to play, Yahoo Sports reports.
