Dodgers vice president of marketing and broadcasting Erik Braverman today became the fifth Major League Baseball executive to come out as gay.
Outsports.com shares his story:
Yet inside baseball – even within Dodger Stadium – Braverman held back his private life, his truth, his identity.
“I didn’t want anyone to, in any way, not view me for the quality of my work,” Braverman told Outsports. “I don’t want to be know as the gay executive who happens to run marketing and broadcasting for the Dodgers. I want my accomplishments and my job to be first and foremost and speak for themselves.”
