Cubs manager Dale Sveum added his voice Monday to those supporting NBA player Jason Collins, who reveals in a Sports Illustrated story that he is gay. Collins, 34, is the first active player in a major pro sport to come out.
``I think everybody is entitled to whatever they do in their life,'' Sveum said. ``I don't think it changes anything. It might help a lot of other people.
``It's part of our culture and society now, and there's nothing wrong with what people do with their lives. It probably will end up being a good thing in the long run.''
