The Chicago White Sox aren’t exactly the most talked about MLB team, in fact, the low-profile franchise is rarely mentioned in the public conversation at all. However, White Sox ace and two-time All Star Chris Sale is doing his best to make baseball fans stop what they are doing and listen to the lanky left hander.
In a recent interview, Sale was asked about Michael Sam of the Missouri Tigers, who went public with his homosexuality over a week ago. Well, Sale was asked about any possible ripple-down effects pertaining to baseball and Sale offered up an opinion that you really can’t knock. Check out what the Florida native had to say:
If you didn’t like Sale before that video, then you surely can at least respect the man now. Hopefully, Sale isn’t alone in his semi-support for gay athletes in baseball, because a sport that loves to make money off of the integration of Jackie Robinson should have no problem forming an open-door policy when it comes to homosexuals on the diamond.
Even the baseball-playing millionaires of the world are entitled to their opinion, and Sale does a fantastic job of getting his point across without sounding like a fool. It’s rare to find this kind of maturity in a 24-year-old superstar, but No. 49 definitely has the look of a future coach and/or general manager of a big league club.
