San Francisco Giants become first professional sports team to join the It Gets Better Project

Last month thousands of Giants fans joined Sean Chapin in asking asking the Giants to make an It Gets Better video. The baseball team was already planning on making a video, expedited their production and on the first day of LGBT Pride Month became the first professional sports team to tell LGBT youth that "It Gets Better."

Giants players Matt Cain, Sergio Romo, Andres Torres and Barry Zito join Giants hitting coach Hensley "Bam Bam" Muelens in delivering the "It Gets Better" message in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Here's some of the great coverage and fan reactions:


The Giants also are promoting the video far and wide. Check our their homepage yesterday:

Take the It Gets Better Project Pledge:

Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."
