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."
