The San Francisco Giants will become the first MLB team to reach out to troubled LGBT teens by recording an It Gets Better video, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The It Gets Better Project begun by gay activist Dan Savage has received enormous support from Hollywood, the business community and leading Democrats, including President Barack Obama. The campaign encourages gay teens to not cave in to bullies, because life eventually gets better.

The Giants announced on Monday that they would participate in the campaign.

The news comes after lifelong Giants fan Sean Chapin gathered more than 6,000 signatures for an online petition urging his hometown team to get on board.

The 35-year-old Chapin called the team's decision as a “breaking bubble” that will have profound reverberations.

A Giants spokeswoman told the paper that the team had considered joining the campaign before Chapin started his petition drive, but conceded it had affected their decision to speed up the process.

The news comes on the heels of Phoenix Suns players Grant Hill and Jared Dudley appearing in an anti-gay bullying ad for GLSEN and CEO Rick Welts' Sunday announcement that he's gay. Welts told the New York Times that his decision to come out was driven in part by a desire to help gay youth.
