OT- Out at the Plate movie showing at Castro Th. 11/10

Looks like a great documentary about a subject that sports at large generally doesn't discuss. I hope to catch this at the Castro on the 10th on November, failing that its on cable on 11/16 quote from the link: Featuring interviews with Dodger teammates Dusty Baker, Davey Lopes and Rick Monday, among others, as well as A's teammates Claudell Washington, Mike Norris, and Shooty Babitt, Out gets into the nitty-gritty of Burke's athletic and post-athletic career. According to almost everyone interviewed, Burke was run out of baseball because he was gay. The Dodgers apparently offered to pay for his wedding and honeymoon if he got married, and when he refused, he was promptly traded to the Athletics. The situation was no better there with manager Billy Martin, and Burke took a leave of absence from the team to clear his head.
