The Los Angeles Dodgers have released a video for the It Gets Better Project, following contributions from a handful of other professional baseball teams to the campaign.
The video features manager Don Mattingly and players James Loney, Matt Guerrier, Jamey Carroll, A.J. Ellis, Rod Barajas, and Hiroki Kuroda encouraging perseverance for bullied teenagers in English, Spanish, and Japanese.
"The Dodgers have been outspoken advocates for equality and against all societal prejudices dating back to the days of Jackie Robinson," Dodgers senior vice president of public affairs Howard Sunkin said in a statement Monday. "Our club wholeheartedly supports an end to bullying and violence against LGBT youth. There is zero tolerance for violence of any kind for any reason in our community."
