Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I think I am the living embodiment of the idea that you never know how life is going to turn out. I am here because I want to be a voice for people who want to come out, but may not be able to do it yet. Every waking minute of my life was a calculated attempt to protect people from knowing this huge secret about me. I think baseball is unfortunately going to be one of the last places where athletes can come out without fear of huge ramifications," he said. "But to say I can't be gay and a great center fielder at the same time is discriminatory and just not true." - Billy Bean in the Penn State Digital Collegian (Grossman, 10/21/2004)
