Second annual LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium


The Los Angeles Dodgers announced today the second annual LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium will be held on Friday, August 22 (vs. NY Mets, 7:10 p.m.). This special event was designed by the Dodgers in partnership with Tom Whitman and Flip Events. Fans can purchase tickets for LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium by visiting www.dodgers.com/out. Groups of 20 or more will receive special recognition opportunities.

"Baseball recently showed the importance of inclusion at the All-Star Game with the hiring of former Dodger Billy Bean as its ambassador," said Dodger Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lon Rosen. "We look forward to once again welcoming and recognizing the LGBT community of Los Angeles to Dodger Stadium. They are an integral part of this great city of ours and the Dodger community."

LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium will feature a special performance of the national anthem by Mary Lambert, as well as a celebrity first pitch and more. August 22 also includes Friday Night Fireworks with music by DJ Manny Lehman. Fans are invited on to the field immediately following the game for the fireworks show.

"The Dodgers are continuing to stand on the right side of history, by reaching out to all of the communities of Los Angeles, including the LGBT community and their straight allies," said Whitman, Senior Vice President of Flip. "Major sports franchises are not often in front of equality issues, but the Dodgers have always been trailblazers, from the days of Jackie Robinson through today. LGBT Night Out will be a fun, celebratory night for all fans who believe in diversity, inclusion and great baseball."
