National gay sports hall of fame launches in Chicago

Its the first of its kind in the nation: The National Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame had its first induction ceremony in Chicago.

Inductees include tennis greats Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King, Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis, and basketball player Jason Collins, who revealed that he was gay in April. Also inducted were the late baseball player Glenn Burke, who died of AIDS in 1995, and umpire Dave Pallone, who umpired the first night game at Wrigley Field in 1988.

Dan Ponce has the story.
