The wave of support for Jason Collins’ courageous decision to reveal his sexuality has been overwhelming.
Now even the Boston Red Sox have taken notice. Collins spent part of the 2012-2013 season with the Celtics and the Red Sox reached out to Collins via twitter to have him throw out the first pitch in an upcoming game:
We salute you, @jasoncollins34 for your courage and leadership. Any time you want to throw out a first pitch at Fenway Park, let us know.

Amazing gesture by the organization, as we all come together in the sports world to celebrate equality. No word if Collins has taken up the offer yet.
