The Los Angeles Dodgers are again kicking off Los Angeles Pride with the team’s sixth annual LGBT Night, this year held June 8. The Dodgers’ LGBT Night last year was by far the biggest Pride Night in sports history, selling about 7,000 tickets.
This year’s invited guests include former MLB umpire Dale Scott, who came out publicly three years ago. Scott has since retired, and the Dodgers are honoring his contributions to LGBTQ visibility in sports. Scott will be throwing out the game’s opening pitch.
The National Anthem will be sung by Brian Justin Crum.
Also expected to be at the game is Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.
The game against the Atlanta Braves starts at 7:10pm.
Outsports is a proud partner for the event. Other partners include Varsity Gay League, the Greater Los Angeles Softball Association and GYM Sportsbar. Varsity Gay League founder Will Hackner will receive a Dodgers Community Hero Award at the game.
Everyone purchasing a ticket specifically for LGBT Night will receiver a Dodgers pride shirt. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased here.
