Brewers Denson Speaks to Media for First Time Since Announcement

Posted: Updated:

Just a few days following the national media storm caused by his announcement, Helena Brewers first baseman David Denson spoke about his decision to become the first player actively affiliated with Major League Baseball to be openly gay.

In an interview with Brewers Director of Broadcasting an Media Relations, Dustin Daniel, Denson said he's had the ringer on his phone set to silent to block out all the noise. He said all he wants to do is focus on baseball and that was biggest reason he decided to make the world aware he was gay.

"It's a huge relief off of my shoulders. I don't have to have that mental blockage anymore," Denson said. "As we know baseball is a very big mental game, and having that part of me that everyday was trying to be something that I wasn't was very hard and me. Coming out wasn't trying to force it on anybody or anything in that sort of way. I just wanted to give the game all of myself and see where I can go from there."
