Gays in team sports.

John Amaechi, a former NBA player came out of the closet recently.

A columnist in the Washington Post says that Amaechi "is the sixth professional male athlete from one of the four major U.S. team sports to openly discuss his homosexuality."

I know of Amaechi, Esera Tuaolo, Roy Simmons and Billy Bean.

Who are the other two?

Edited to add: I missed David Kopay, who's mentioned in the Wikipedia entry on Roy Simmons. So, now I'm missing only one.
