We have a very strict anti-discrimination policy here with the Seattle Mariners ... It is our desire that we make every effort to recruit employees that are as diverse as the community we live in. Intolerance has no place in our game. We would very much welcome and support an openly gay player on our team.
I don't discriminate personally, and we don't professionally as the Seattle Mariners organization ... I think as a society we continue to evolve and continue to improve, and it is people with that type of courage that continue to allow that to happen.More quotes »
