Brewers' Denson Comes Out as First Openly Gay Professional Baseball Player

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers minor leaguer David Denson has become the first openly gay player on a team affiliated with Major League Baseball.
    
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says Denson, with the help of former major leaguer Billy Bean, reached out to the newspaper to tell his story.
    
The 20-year-old first baseman plays for the Helena Brewers in the rookie Pioneer League. Bean, Major League Baseball's first Ambassador for Inclusion, revealed he is gay after his playing career.
    
In June, pitcher Sean Conroy of the Sonoma Stompers of the independent Pacific Association, revealed that he is gay. The Pacific Association is not affiliated with Major League Baseball.
