Mark Dewey

Mark Alan Dewey (born January 3, 1965 in [2]

Dewey was involved in a notable controversy on July 28, 1996, when he refused to participate with his teammates in a pregame ceremony intended to support research of a cure for AIDS. As part of "Until There's A Cure Day", members of the Giants wore AIDS awareness ribbons on their uniforms and stood in a group shaped like that symbol during speeches by Peter Magowan and Willie Brown. Dewey refused to take the field for the ceremony, and he wore his ribbon sideways (which would have resembled the Jesus fish symbol). He cited religious reasons for his refusal, voicing the belief that homosexuality is a sin.[1]
