Cubs To Make "It Gets Better" Clip
Cubs To Make "It Gets Better" Clip

The Chicago Cubs have announced their intent to follow the lead of the San Francisco Giants and create an It Gets Better clip.

The Cubs will be the second professional sports team to participate in the "It Gets Better" campaign following the San Francisco Giants who released their video earlier this week. "The Cubs applaud the Giants for their stand against anti-LGBT bullying. Bullying of anyone for any reason is unacceptable," said Laura Ricketts, Cubs owner and board member. "We are proud to join the Giants in taking a stand against bullying and encourage other professional sports organizations to do the same.

Last year the Cubs had a float in the Chicago Pride Parade.

1. Great News
I doubt The Tribune company would have done this, there is something to say about a family owned team. Go Ricketts!
