Dodgers slate LGBT celebration for Sept. 27

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will host their first LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium on Sept. 27 for a 7:10 p.m. PT game against the Rockies.

LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium will feature a celebrity throwing out the first pitch, and a special guest will perform the national anthem with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles. There will be fireworks after the game, with music by DJ Manny Lehman.

"We welcome all fans to Dodger Stadium throughout each season," said Dodgers executive vice president and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen. "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."

The Dodgers partnered with Tom Whitman and Flip Events to design the special event. Fans can purchase tickets for LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium by visiting www.dodgers.com/out using the promotional code OUT. Groups of 20 or more will receive special recognition opportunities.

"The Dodgers have been standing on the right side of history from the days of Jackie Robinson through today," said Whitman. "LGBT Night Out on Sept. 27 will be an amazing night for baseball fans, for the LGBT community and everyone who is true blue."
