Sooo, a bunch of guys from the "South" e-mailed me about my last posting about the "south".
Hey man--come on and enjoy the south if you get assigned or traded here. I don't think the environment would be any different than on any other team, regardless of the town/area/city/state, etc. I do know one guy from my college who was closeted and played a number of years in A and AA. His career ended with a nagging injury and the inability to hit when his injury was such a bother to him. He mainly played in small cities, and managed ok...in fact, he said living/playing in the midwest was more difficult than in the south.
Thats very true. I know that wherever I get sent it will be good just to be able to play. It's all I really want to do is play. I'm just happy that I am able to vent and have a way to reach out to other guys in a world where I keep myself in the closet. In just got done reading Going The Other Way by Billy Bean. Man, he is lucky. He has a great life now and I was able to see a lot of myself in that story. If any of you guys reading are also Baseball players or college athletes, I suggest giving it a read.
I know that there are college and pro athletes reading this. No one has e-mailed me or IMed me that I know of, but I feel like it's inevitable that someone who is reading this is. I hope one day sexuality won't matter, but it's a long way away. In some way, gay jocks have our own hidden fraternity. Our house is an online chatroom and e-mail exchange. Our brotherhood meetings are when I am able to reconnect with a bunch of you guys on my blog. So, i guess I am the president.
What most straight guys don't realize is that a gay guy is not always someone who is into fasion and into Madonna. We are #1 in our fantasy football leagues, we are slugging home runs out of the park, we are skating faster on the ice, swimming faster in pools... we aren't always the norm.
I hope my roommates, former teammates and friends would accept me as a guy who I am. The same guy that has been their friend all these years and just so happens to not want to marry a woman and wants to have a relationship witha guy.
I really do appreciate all the support and e-mails I get from you guys. I like the interaction I am able to have, when I am not busy as all hell. Anyone that wants to email, shoot me one at Clubhousecloset@gmail.com
Enjoy all the hotties I posted down below. I have some more I want to post later on. Keep sending these guys in. Of course I don't post names or who I got them from so you don't have to worry.
