Player who was in gay porn video trying out for the Indian 

A Japanese player who is being shunned by all Japanese teams because he appeared in a gay porn video is trying out for the Cleveland Indians.
Is Tadano gay? Of course, in the real world it wouldn't matter. But this is baseball where there has never been an openly gay player. Apparently he has been well-received by players and has support from his potential teammates.

I think this great. He hasn't admitted that he's gay, but he's only one step removed from it. I think that gay players should be openly embraced in all sports, but that isn't going to happen right now. Just having the issue brought out in the open is a good thing. Hopefully good dialogue can come from this.
