Video: Oakland A’s Say ‘It Gets Better’

Post submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist

The Oakland A’s are the latest professional sports team to produce a video for the It Gets Better campaign.

Leading off the video is pitcher Brandon McCarthy, whom we applauded two weeks ago for calling out a homophobic “kiss cam” gag as “offensive to gay males.”

Pitcher Dallas Braden, second baseman Jemile Weeks and stadium in-game host Kara Tsuboi are also featured in the video.

The A’s cross-Bay rivals – the San Francisco Giants – were the first professional sports team to contribute to the It Gets Better campaign back in June 2011. The Cubs, Dodgers, Mariners, Orioles, Phillies, Rays and Red Sox all followed suit.
