 Gay Player For MLB
BHR Hollywood Reports.........For so long, David Denson desperately wanted to reveal to his baseball teammates that he is gay. He just never envisioned it happening in such impromptu and unstructured fashion.

A first baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers' rookie affiliate in Helena, Mont., Denson had just entered the clubhouse a month or so ago when a teammate jokingly referred to him using a derogatory term for a gay male.

On Wednesday, Denson shared a heartfelt message via Instagram, thanking friends and family for accepting him for who he is, “despite any judgement they may have”:
