“Out. The Glenn Burke Story” is getting a nationwide release on cable and satellite TV tomorrow!! The documentary is about Glenn Burke’s legacy as the first openly gay Major League Baseball player and will have its national premiere on VERSUS on Tuesday, August 9, at 10 p.m. ET.

Nominated for a Northern California Area Emmy Award and a nominee for Outstanding Documentary at the 22nd Annual GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards, “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” originally premiered on and was produced by Comcast SportsNet Bay Area last November.

VERSUS will provide encore presentations of the documentary on Saturday, August 13, at 11 p.m. ET and Wednesday, August 17, at 11 p.m. ET

Glenn Burke is a gay black hero that our community needs to know about.  And the documentary “Out: The Glenn Burke Story” (broadcast on Comcast SportsNet in November), reminded us that we need more people to hear about this incredible man and his remarkable story.

Glenn Burke Baseball Card

Glenn Burke is a legend in Major League Baseball.  His sports career led him into professional baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, being hailed by one coach as “the next Willie Mays.” And today, he is still considered the inventor of the “high five.”

He was later blackballed out of the game because he was gay. But he was more than out of the closet. When he was offered a bonus to marry a woman, he defiantly said no and was even openly dating Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda‘s son.  Tommy Lasorda!  Learn more by watching the preview below…
