INTERESTING ORIGINS OF THE “HIGH FIVE” Glenn Burke and Dusty Baker For decades, the "conventional wisdom" has been that the first high five occurred between Dusty Baker andGlenn Burke of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 2, 1977 in Dodger Stadium. It was the last day of the regular season, and Dodgers leftfielder Dusty Baker had just gone deep off the Astros' J.R. Richard. It was Baker's 30th home run, making the Dodgers the first team in history to have four sluggers -- Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey and Reggie Smith -- with at least 30 homers each. It was a wild, triumphant moment and a good omen as the Dodgers headed to the playoffs. Burke, waiting on deck, thrust his hand enthusiastically over his head to greet his friend at the plate. Baker, not knowing what to do, smacked it. "His hand was up in the air, and he was arching way back," says Baker, now 62 and managing the Reds. "So I reached up and hit his hand.

I never knew this, and according to Jamie Lee Curtis, Glenn Burke and Dusty Baker invented the "Hi 5". It then became a symbol of homosexuality in the San Francisco area... Who'd a thunk it?!?
Glenn Burke has also been recognized for inventing the high five. In 1977, Burke ran onto the field to congratulate his Los Angeles Dodgers teammate Dusty Baker (current Cincinnati Reds manager) by raising his hand over his head as Baker jogged home from third base. Not knowing what to do with the hand, Baker slapped it, thus inventing the high five. After retiring from baseball, Burke used the high five as a symbol of *** pride.
Glenn Burke also pioneered the "high five" when congratulating teammate Dusty Baker on a HOMERUN :)
