Gays ask Cardinals to point Kiss Cam at them

Thursday, September 16, 2010 ~ Updated 9:25 AM

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The between innings "Kiss Cam" is a popular feature at Busch Stadium and other ballparks -- the video board showing a couple, then waiting for a smooch. Now, gay activists in St. Louis are urging the Cardinals to show same-sex couples kissing their partners, too.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that at least 200 gays and lesbians will be at Busch Stadium on Saturday as part of an "Out at the Ballpark" promotion organized by the nonprofit group St. Louis Pride.

The request to the Cardinals was spurred by a Kiss Cam incident at Sunday's St. Louis Rams game. The camera zeroed in on two men dressed in jerseys of the opposing team, the Arizona Cardinals. The crowd laughed. Gays in the crowd called it offensive.

The baseball Cardinals say they'll make no promises for Saturday's game.
