At the site of this year’s All-Star Game, Major League Baseball announced the appointment of former Dodger Billy Bean as MLB’s first Ambassador for Inclusion, providing guidance and training related to efforts to support those in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community throughout the sport.
The news came the same day as it was revealed that another former Dodger, Glenn Burke, would be recognized posthumously by MLB as the sport’s gay pioneer.
