Looking to local sports heroes to speak up for LGBT youth and to end bullying seems like a brilliant idea considering the lingering reputation of homophobia linked to many sports organizations. I don't know about you but I take great heart that such a young man can be so passionate about such a worthwhile cause. Who knows if the Red Sox will heed Sam's petition but I would certainly appreciate it if you would help spread the word and help Sam's wish come true.
How can you help? Sign his petition here (it only takes a minute) and spread the word.
