Second baseman in favor of second-class citizens

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 1-208And now in ballers who go to bat against our pitches for equality: MLB free agent Jeff Kent (who this year played for the Los Angeles Dodgers) has given $15,000 towards California's anti-gay "yes on 8" campaign:

Jeff Kent opens his checkbook and takes a stand against gay marriage [LA Times blogs] (H/t: Joe.My.God)

Kent, who is thought to be retiring, is said to be a candidate for the baseball Hall of Fame. It's just a shame that now, due to his foul strike against gay families, Kent has willingly inscribed his name into history's Hall of Civil Rights Injustices. Cooperstown is a fab legacy, but "Co-opted Marriage Town" is sure to go down in the annals of grossness.

Your thoughts

Am I wrong, or doesn't he live in Texas? Sure he played for a California team and grew up in Southern California, but he no longer has a say.

It's too bad I used to like him. Way to alienate fans there buddy.
