Say what you will about the homophobia inside locker rooms, but in team's front offices, well, whatever pays the bills. The Toronto Blue Jays have announced their plans to host Toronto Pride Day at the SkyDome on June 23. The promotion is called — no kidding — "Men With Bats." (Subhead: "They Wield Them With Pride.") As OutSports.com points out, other teams are having similar days, including the Cubs, Pirates, Phillies and Giants. (Hmm. Blue state, blue state, blue state, blue state and Canada. We won't even pretend to act surprised.)
