I had the pleasure of getting an advance screening out a new documentary, "Out. The Glenn Burke Story." My review is here (I call it a must-see). Burke was a Major League Baseball player with the Dodgers and Athletics, who was widely known while playing as being gay.
The documentary does a great job of examining Burke's career and his life after baseball. He died of AIDS in 1995. The show is airing on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area Nov. 10. Here are some clips from "Out" worth watching:

Review: "Out" is a must-see documentary.
