Yup. There are actually quite a few out/or at least not really trying to hide it female athletes (Billie Jean King (tennis too), Sheryl Swopes (WNBA) was in a relationship w/ a woman for several years, several women on the US national soccer team, etc.), but I can't think of a well-known male athlete who came out while he was still playing... but maybe someone can correct me...
Also, on an unrelated note, I actually learned to play poker by playing in weekly freeroll tournaments at a gay sportsbar in my city... Nothing like playing cards w/ a bunch of queer folks while the tv's are showing football, the speakers are blasting Lady Gaga, and the ceiling has a spinning disco ball
