For the first time ever, the entire Dodger team will wear custom on-field pride caps as the organization celebrates its ninth annual LGBTQ+ Night, presented by Blue Shield of California, on June 3 at Dodger Stadium.
The special caps will be sold at the Top of the Park and the Left Field Team Store while supplies last.
Eight days later, the Dodgers and Giants will make history on June 11 when both teams take the field at Oracle Park in San Francisco wearing their respective team’s pride caps.
“The Los Angeles Dodgers are proud to stand with and recognize the LGBTQ+ community in Los Angeles and globally,” said Stan Kasten, president & CEO, Los Angeles Dodgers. “The Dodgers have a history of breaking barriers and we’re proud to be a part of another chapter in MLB history as the Dodgers and Giants each wear their team’s pride caps on June 11. While our organizations have a long-storied rivalry on the field, we stand together when it comes to equality for all.”
Fans who purchase a special ticket package to the June 3 game will receive an exclusive commemorative Dodger LGBTQ+ game jersey, which is part of a special ticket package available for purchase at dodgers.com/LAPride. There will be many special guests and activities will take place during and prior to the game.
The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation will also donate 50% of the proceeds of the 50/50 raffle to The Los Angeles LGBT Center, the world’s largest provider of programs and services for LGBT individuals.
“The Dodgers annual Pride Night has become one of the most anticipated nights of the season,” said Erik Braverman, senior vice president of marketing, communications and broadcasting. “I am incredibly proud to have the added element of the on-field caps this year. I look forward to sharing these historic games with members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies.”
