The Chicago Cubs on Monday released their promised It Gets Better video.

The 60-second video stars outfielder Marlon Byrd, second baseman Darwin Barney, manager Mike Quade, center fielder Bob Dernier, starting pitching Ryan Dempster and owner Laura Ricketts.

The Cubs are the second MLB team after the San Francisco Giants to reach out to troubled LGBT teens by recording a video for gay activist Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, which encourages troubled gay teens considering suicide to not cave in to bullies, because life eventually gets better.

“It is not OK for anyone to feel uncomfortable or unsafe,” Barney says standing inside Wrigley Field.

“Something LGBT kids and teens experience all too often, Dernier says.

“The Chicago Cubs organization celebrates you for exactly who you are, gay or straight,” Quade adds.

Ricketts, who made history in 2009 when she became the first openly gay Major League Baseball owner, alludes to her own struggle when she says, “We know it can get really tough, I've been there, so many of us have been there.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Other MLB teams, including the Boston Red Sox and the Seattle Mariners, have also agreed to make a video.
