Billy Van Raaphorst, For those of you who do not know, Billy Van Raaphorst is one of those rare baseball game officials and courageous admitted to being hmosxl. In sports, often frustrations testimony of coaches and sometimes fights between players or referees. But this is something different that made a huge noise gay rights. Gay referee Billy Van Raaphorst had experienced this week just past when presented in a minor league baseball to do your job. I did not expect that because of their sexuality, would be insulted by the manager of the Edmonton Capital, Brent Bowers.

He reportedly shouted Billy Bowers Brent Van Raaphorst quoted saying the following lines

“You know what I heard? I heard that they are an insult () fag. The sound of the heads of several people in the league is that you’re a fag … I kick your ass, fag.”

Being a manager of a team does not give you any right to judge others based on their character or sexuality. Bowers only showed that his outburst was motivated primarily by their hatred of hmosxls led to negative reactions from people especially those who have witnessed the event. Because of this, Bowers was suspended for the remainder of the season and was been found to $ 5,000. After facing so many people react to their bad actions, decided to resign.

Bowers actions have violated certain rules of the sport and should be treated accordingly to show baseball fans that the committee does not tolerate such reactions. The association of minor league baseball also added that the contributions of the referees in the game is of great value and importance for both teams, players and fans as well. With this, they should be treated with respect.

Billy Van Raaphorst is just one of many sports officials who have faced the wrath of team managers and coaches. They are often faced with the frustrations of the team coaches because of bad calls but hey, we’re all just human beings and can not be perfect in any aspect of your life or career. Everyone makes honest mistakes and that is a fact. We just have to accept that fact and hope that they make the wrong decision they made.
