William Daro Bean is a former professional baseball player and MLB's first Ambassador for Inclusion.
Last month, Cincinnati Reds announcer Thom Brennaman used a gay slur on a live broadcast and followed it up with an apology that some regarded as awkward and insincere. Billy Bean, MLB's Ambassador for Inclusion (and a former Major Leaguer), joins us to discuss the Brennaman incident and its aftermath, his own coming out story, and why he believes baseball is becoming more tolerant.More on MLB's Billy Bean:http://billybean.com/
