White Sox skipper to attend Gay Games

June 30, 2006 at 12:30 PM

CHICAGO, June 30 (UPI) -- Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen, fined for using a gay slur against a columnist, says he'll spend an off-day at the Gay Games on July 17.

He also plans to attend sensitivity training sessions soon, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Guillen said he had already planned to attend the Gay Games, and his visit is not related to the trouble he got into with Major League Baseball for calling Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti a "fag" during a locker room interview. Guillen has apologized.
