Brian Ruby Only Gay Out Pro Baseball Player, Ryan Field Books

 Brian Ruby Only Gay Out Pro Baseball Player

This story isn’t about the first gay pro baseball player. That fact belongs to Glenn Burke. You can read all about that here. It’s fascinating. 

Here’s another gay fact for professional sports. Again, this time it’s baseball. According to this next article, Brian Rudy is the only out gay pro baseball player at the present time. Ruby first realized he was gay at 14 years old, but it’s his comments I truly find interesting. He’s not a stereotype and he breaks all the rules about what people expect a gay man to be like. I’ve been saying this kind of thing would happen for a long time. And trust me, there are more gay men like Brian Ruby out there…and there always have been. You just didn’t know it.  

“I kept thinking about the little 14-year-old me, who was scared because I’m a baseball player who loved country music,” Ruby, 25, told USA TODAY Sports. “Those are worlds where people like me are told they can’t belong. I’m not a hot-shot prospect. But today, you can’t find a single active baseball player who is out publicly. I want to help create a world where future generations of baseball players don’t have to sacrifice authenticity or who they really are to play the game they love.” 

Here’s the rest.  Now, if that statement doesn’t break all the Will and Grace rules I don’t know what does. And could you imagine those idiots on Sex and the City dealing with a gay man who’s like this? It’s kind of amusing to think about. The women of Twitter would lose their minds.
