"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Good! *Kevin McClatchy* McClatchy is the former owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates Major League Baseball team. And - in an interview with the New York Times published on Saturday - McClatchy publicly came out as gay. He told the paper that, "homophobic language during his days in baseball" convinced "him that keeping his sexual orientation hidden was best." McClatchy in one of the first sports team owners to come out as gay - and to this day - no active player in America's major sports leagues has come out as gay. While NFL stars have recently come out in support of marriage equality - there is still a strong stigma against homosexuality in sports - at all levels - from youth leagues to the pros.
