Video: The balls to go to bat for gay players

by Jeremy Hooper

We didn't see Joe Torre's appearance on "Larry King Live," because, well -- it aired on a Friday, and our sports intake on that night is limited to only "Friday Night Lights," beer pong, or intimate wrestling. But thanks to our friends at "Gay USA," we've now learned that on that appearance the the duo discussed the issue of out baseball players. Have a look/listen:

On the issue of a player who's "batting for the Yankees," it's good to see that Torre's not a Dodger.

Oh, and no comment about that anchor throw-to at the end of the clip.

Your thoughts

Speaking of "batting for the other team..." here's Anderson Cooper... That throw was a bit comical in it's timing. But it didn't seem to phase Ms. Vanderbilt.

When did "batting for the Yankees," come to mean homosexual?

Not sure when that came about, Derek. I think I first heard it on "The Real World" about ten or eleven years ago.
