Alex Ciepley is an openly gay baseball blogger who doesn't often write about gay issues, regardless of his provocatively titled blog, "Ball Talk." He follows the Cubs, has a succinct and crisp writing style, and is a shrewd analyst. But today he offers us some fluff: "Baseball's Top Ten Gay Icons." You might be surprised at some of the guys who made the list. Anyway, this is a fun article, and Ciepley's comments are both enlightening (for this straight fan) as well as amusing. I hope to see more of this kind of writing from Ciepley as the season unfolds.
