David 'Big Papi' Ortiz thinks it's time people get over gay athletes.
The star of the Boston Red Sox, a Major League Baseball team, is getting prepared for the upcoming season.
He talked the Boston Herald about his mother Angela, and how her support of a gay childhood friend was instructive.
'...We all knew, when he was 13, that he was gay. And he was always talking to my mother, telling her everything,' Ortiz said according to OutSports.
