The pic tells the true story of Glenn Burke – inventor of the high five – and the first major league baseball player to be publicly outed as gay. Burke played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland Athletics and though his career only spanned four seasons (1976-79), he is still the only player to come out to teammates and team owners during his professional career and the first to publicly acknowledge it, famously stating, “They can’t ever say now that a gay man can’t play in the majors, because I’m a gay man and I made it.” Burke died in 1995 of complications from AIDS. As for the high five, the incident happened after a teammate hit a home run and while rounding the bases, Burke randomly raised his hand in celebration. The teammate was thrown off by the gesture and could only think of raising his hand to slap Burke’s, leading to the invention of the high five.
