Red Sox release powerful 'It Gets Better' video with Francona, Youkilis, Varitek

New, comments

The Boston Red Sox are now the third MLB team to release an 'It Gets Better' video. And this one's the best of them all. It features manager Terry Francona (right) and star players Kevin Youkilis and Jason Varitek. It also includes various members of the LGBT community. It's the first video I've felt speaks directly to kids and their issues and offers deeply heartfelt messages. The members of the team aren't just reading from a cue card, it feels like they're speaking from the heart. When Kevin Youkilis says he goes to therapy, that's a personal touch I just haven't felt in the others.

Kudos to the Red Sox. Now, where are the Yankees? Video after the jump.
