Team reaches out to its LGBT fan base with promotion.

The Reds’ Pride night hat.

The Cincinnati Reds will hold their first LGBT Pride game June 8 when they play the St. Louis Cardinals.

From the team’s announcement:

Celebrate the first Pride Night at the ballpark on Friday, June 8! A pregame ceremony will honor the LGBTQ Community Advocate Award winner presented by TriHealth. If you arrive early, stop up to the Machine Room to hang out before the game. And be sure to stick around for a postgame fireworks show!

There are multiple ticket packages available, all of which include a game ticket and exclusive pride night hat. Infield Box and Terrace Line packages also come with $10 in concessions credit.

In addition, a portion of each ticket package sold will be donated back to Cincinnati Pride.

Tickets range from $16 to $63 and can be purchased here.

The team is also giving away a cool rainbow hat, which is worth the price of admission.

The Yankees and Angels are now the only MLB teams that have never held a Pride night. The Yankees because they’re the Yankees and the Angels for reasons unknown, though you can buy Angels Pride shirts.

This year, 23 of MLB’s 30 teams will have a Pride event.
