Detroit Tigers right fielder Torri Hunter has told the Los Angeles Times he believes an out gay teammate would make him “uncomfortable”
“For me, as a Christian…I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, says it’s not right. It will be difficult and uncomfortable.”
Hunter a four-time All-Star and a 9-time Gold Glove winner’s 17-year-old son was arrested in Texas in may on charges of sexual abuse of a 16 year old girl who later recanted her story.
There’s been no word from any of Hunter’s Detroit Tigers teammates if being on a team with a homophobic bigot makes them uncomfortable.
