Toronto Blue Jays Hosting 2019 Pride Night Game

Who’s ready for some baseball…

On Thursday, June 6, the Toronto Blue Jays will host Pride Night at Rogers Centre. The first 15,000 fans admitted to the ballpark that night to watch the Blue Jays play the New York Yankees will receive a limited-edition rainbow hooded henley.
 
Last season, 25 teams hosted a Pride Night for their fans at the ballpark, but in 2019, for the first time in MLB history, 28 of the 30 teams in the league plan to celebrate their LGBTQ fans.
 
Last year, the Blue Jays helped kick off Pride Month in Toronto when they hosted the Baltimore Orioles. That night, fans received a limited-edition Blue Jays Pride Hat, and enjoyed a variety of Pride-themed activities, including food, photo ops, temporary tattoos, and rainbow flag giveaways.
 
In addition to giveaways and entertainment, the overall mission of Pride Night is to provide an inclusive environment for fans.
 
The Toronto Blue Jays are working hard to ensure Pride Night lives up to expectations. This season’s event will build off the success of 2018 with the goal of growing the team’s relationship with the LGBTQ community in Toronto to ensure a positive fan experience regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion or other.
 
Tickets for the Toronto Blue Jays Pride Night at Rogers Centre on Thursday, June 6, are available now at bluejays.com/tickets. Gates open that night at 5:30 pm.
