Phillies debut ‘It Gets Better’ anti-bullying video

    The Phillies want young people to know “It Gets Better.”

    After announcing last month the team would join the national anti-bullying campaign aimed at LGBT youth, the video has made its way to computer screens everywhere.

    The Phils’ 31-second video is just one that more than 10,000 people have made to tell bullied youth not to lose hope. This is the seventh video in the campaign made by a pro sports team, and was brought about by Phils fan Jerome Hunt, who started an online petition.
