Fans Ask Baseball Hall of Fame to Honor First Gay Player

An online petition is asking the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to honor Glenn Burke, the first openly gay Major League Baseball player, despite a previous refusal to do so. Around 22,000 signatures on the petition, as well as the (at least) eleven teams that have made It Gets Better videos, and the three MLB players and their families who posed for the NOH8 campaign in the spring, indicate that baseball fans and players support LGBT inclusivity within the sport.
