"Dodger dogs" all around!
The Los Angeles Dodgers has announced its first LGBT night, to be held September 27.
The Dodgers’ LGBT Night OUT will feature “a celebrity First Pitch” and “the National Anthem performed by a surprise guest with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles,” according to an announcement on the team’s website. There will be fireworks after the Friday night game, in which the Dodgers play the Colorado Rockies.
The Dodgers are partnering with Tom Whitman of Flip Events for the event. He said the Dodgers "have been standing on the right side of history from the days of Jackie Robinson through today."
Dodgers executive Lon Rosen issued a statement saying, “We welcome all fans to Dodger Stadium throughout each season. We are especially proud to welcome and recognize the LGBT community of Los Angeles, an integral part of the city and of the Dodgers community.”
Other major league teams have hosted similar events.
