    Hmm, I don't know any playing while being out, although John Amechi (sp?) of the Utah Jazz/Orlando Magic came out a few years after retiring. Will Sheridan of Villanova came out after he played also.

    I know a former European pro baskettball player who's "out" but not publicly.
    He does modeling and extreme sports now.

    never been an active pro athlete in any major north american team sport to come out while playing...several have after they've retired

    as far as across the pond, think there's an active rugby player and soccer player who are out and still playing

    The fact the question has to be asked tells me we still have a very long way to go.
