NewsChannel 3’s Blaine Stewart talks with Robbie Rogers, professional soccer player for the LA Galaxy and the first openly gay man to compete in a major North American sports league.

Rogers tells the story of his incredible journey from a terrified teenager to a trailblazing out-and-proud pro soccer player in his candid memoir ‘Coming Out To Play”. The two discuss coming out in their twenties, Rogers’ big win in the MLS Cup the day before, and their love of cake.
