    The Dodgers the first annual LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium on Friday, September 27 (vs. COL, 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 using the promotional code OUT. Groups of 20 or more will receive special recognition opportunities.

    “We welcome all fans to Dodger Stadium throughout each season,” said Dodger 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.”

    LGBT Night Out at Dodger Stadium will feature a celebrity first pitch, the national anthem performed by a special guest with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. September 27 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 have been standing on the right side of history from the days of Jackie Robinson through today,” said Whitman, Senior Vice President Flip. “LGBT Night Out on September 27 will be an amazing night for baseball fans, for the LGBT community and everyone who is true blue.”

    They should hold individual nights for each group. Tranny night at Dodger Stadium could be the greatest sporting event since Ben-Hur beat Messala

    I got a Google news alert about this because, yes, they chose a photo of Nick Punto to run with it.


    Should I be concerned?

    Heard they're going to combine it with an end-of-season special at the concession stand -- 2-for-1 on footlong hot dogs and fish tacos.
