MLB Pitcher Cut From Team for Anti-LGBT Comments

1 min read

The Toronto Blue Jays cut pitcher Anthony Bass just one day after he stood by a post he shared defending his faith and supporting ongoing conservative boycotts.

Bass reposted a video to his Instagram story discussing “the biblical reason Christians should boycott Target” and companies like Bud Light.

“Here’s the reason biblically why I believe Christians have gotta be boycotting Target, Bud Light, and any other corporation that’s pushing the things they’re pushing,” the video said.

The video’s creator then quoted a biblical verse and pledged to “expose the darkness [Target] is shoving into children’s faces.”

The video’s description read, in part, “Target has begun pushing the message of transitioning to young people.”

Bass was compelled by the organization to apologize the day after reposting the video, saying, “I recognize yesterday ​​I made a post that was hurtful to the Pride community, which includes friends of mine and close family members of mine.”

He promised to “educate himself” using “the Blue Jays’ resources” going forward.

Comments Became a ‘Distraction’

On Thursday, when questioned by reporters before a game in Houston, Bass reiterated that he was “working hard” to educate himself, including meeting with activist group Pride Toronto.

However, he also said he stood by his “personal beliefs”.

That was enough for the Blue Jays to cut him the very next day, when he was set to catch a ceremonial first pitch from Toronto LGBTQ+ activist leZlie Lee Kam.

Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins was hesitant to admit Bass was let go for his comments.

“There’s a myriad of variables,” Atkins said. “Performance is usually the driving one and performance was a large aspect of this decision. Distraction was a small part of it and something we had to factor in.”

Bass is not the only pitcher to comment on social issues. Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw and Washington Nationals pitcher Trevor Williams each criticized the Los Angeles Dodgers for honoring a drag troupe that mocks Christianity.



  1. This is just pure hate in action. The ones in need of education are the child abusers pushing this lie that the children were “made wrong”, ergo “mistakes”! There is NO WORSE harm one can do a child than sexual abuse and THAT is what this lie is pushing on a massive scale! These pushing it are the real “haters”. Yhwh God loves everyone of us, but some behaviors are unacceptable because they cause harm; this is 1 such. The Bible labels it a sin, even an abomination,precisely because it does harm to the practitioner of the behavior and all those around that person as well. We are instructed to resist sin, not embrace, let alone celebrate, it. That’s true for all such behaviors, not just those associated with sexual intercourse. Yhwh God also cautions us that our feelings are very deceptive, and not to be relied upon to steer us correctly. This issue is more than blatant proof of that fact! And the lies about the numbers of “detransitioners”, which is increasing as fast as transitioning itself, almost, to hide that reality only make the lies that muh more egregious. Jesus warned it would be better for the person who causes a child to stumble (into sin), to be cast into the sea with a millstone about his neck. If that,’s the better option for all those causing all these children now to stumble, consider what might be the worse options. As it is, we could fill the Pacific pretty fast…

  2. How much more proof do companies and business need, that America is sick of the woke and queer movements. Go woke, go broke, so long baseball, you are now added to the nascars, and football list as finished !
