MLB’s inclusion ambassador says his visit to Mets camp was “100 percent successful” despite the controversial comments about his so-called “lifestyle” made afterward by Daniel Murphy.
Billy Bean did not take offense to Daniel Murphy’s comments. In fact, he embraced them.

All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, known for being an ardent Christian, raised some eyebrows when he addressed what Bean had to say.
“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport,” Collins wrote in Sports Illustrated. “But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation.”
