The San Francisco Giants announced last month that they will be the first professional Baseball team to join the "It Gets Better" project after more than 6000 people signed a petition on started by Giants fan Sean Chapin.

The Cleveland Indians should follow the Giants' lead by supporting lesbian, gay, bisxual, and transgender (LGBT) youth through the "It Gets Better" project by making their own video.

      Professional ballplayers are seen as heroes by many kids. The Indians can raise their stature by joining this campaign. No kid should ever be driven to take his or her life by bullies. Go Tribe.

      Didn't this same petition come up months ago? I might be wrong, but it seems to me they're dragging their feet on this issue.

      There is too much bullying & suicides of kids today. Since young people love baseball, a video for the "It Gets Better" project will help not just gay & lesbian kids, but ALL kids since it will be widely seen. Go Tribe!

      I am a happily married man to, I might add, a beautiful woman. We just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We are not asking the Indians not to be straight, just not narrow...It might save a life. Thank you, and go Tribe!
