MLB includes gender neutral pronoun in joking excuse note

2017 MLB World Series logo.

MLB has included a gender neutral pronoun in joking excuse note following game 5 of the World Series.

With Sunday's game going well past midnight on the East Coast, Major League Baseball has provided a letter you can fill in and use as an excused absence from school/work tomorrow. 

Though the note will probably get you a stern eyeroll from your teacher/boss, notice they included "they" along with "he/she" in the letter.

“We encourage supportive and accepting environments among our young fans, in the workplace, in our clubhouses, on the field and in the stands,” said Billy Bean, vice-president, Major League Baseball. 

This nod of inclusion did not go unnoticed by the LGBT+ community.
