Yunel Escobar Suspended For 3 Days, Will Work With GLAAD And You Can Play

After writing an anti-gay slur in his eye-black over the weekend, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar will serve a three-day suspension and pay a $82,000 fine.

“Today’s actions show that MLB and the Toronto Blue Jays are committed to creating an environment that all fans and families can enjoy, not a place where discriminatory language and anti-gay attitudes are accepted,” said Herndon Graddick of GLAAD, which will work with Escobar alongside the inclusive athletic organization You Can Play.
