Bart Bridge Remembers.... Glenn Burke

Bart Bridge Remembers.... Glenn Burke


If you don't know who Glenn Burke is, you should go on wikipedia immediately and look him up. He went to Berkeley High and played for the Oakland A's. Oh, and he also was the first openly gay ball-player, and this was in the 70's. He was so brave and so ahead of his time. Glenn Burke is a stone cold original, beloved by peers. Oh, and did I mention that he invented the high five?  Seriously, this guy deserves more credit. He was honored at the 2014 All-Star Game, but Fox News would have no part of it. Go figure.
