The San Francisco Giants expect a big turnout at Pride Night

On Saturday in San Francisco, the Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will take part in Pride Day, with both teams donning Pride-themed ballcaps. The Giants don’t expect any players to refuse to wear the logos, as five Tampa Bay Rays players did last week during their Pride celebrations. Giants outfielder Austin Slater told the San Francisco Chronicle, “I think it’s a step in the right way, acceptance of all people.” “It’s a reflection of where our society is headed, and it’s fantastic.” It’s great to see MLB stepping in and declaring this a day – minor-league baseball has been doing this for a long time and has had a lot of success with it, and I believe it’s pushing the needle. That’s the case.

Jeopardy! champion Amy Schneider will throw out the first pitch and Dale Scott, who retired in 2017 as the only openly gay umpire in the league’s history, will participate in the delivering the lineup card.

The best example was last year,” Kapler said. “We’ll handle it by ensuring that we have all the conversations that are necessary leading up to the day and trust that those conversations will lead to the full-fledged support of our players and staff.”

“It is really important that everybody feels welcome and wanted and appreciated. And that is absolutely true for the LGBTQ+ community. We’re going to do everything in our power to ensure that that feeling of being welcomed is really evident in our ballpark,” Kapler said.
