Toronto Blue Jays Hosting 2022 Pride Night Game

Who’s ready for some baseball…

By Christopher Turner

On Friday, June 3, the Toronto Blue Jays will help kick off Pride Month by hosting Pride Night at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. The first 15,000 fans admitted that night to watch the Blue Jays play the Minnesota Twins will receive a limited-edition rainbow towel.

In addition to giveaways and entertainment, the overall mission of Pride Night at the Rogers Centre is to provide an inclusive environment for all fans. Fans are actually encouraged to arrive early for a ton of pregame interactive activities that will be taking place in the WestJet Flight Deck.

In addition, to Friday night’s game Pride Weekend festivities will continue the following afternoon when the Blue Jays play the Minnesota Twins on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, June 5 the Toronto Blue Jays will celebrate a special Jr. Jays Sunday focused on kindness and inclusion.

Of course this isn’t the first year the team has encouraged inclusively with Pride festivities. The Toronto Blue Jays have previously hosted Pride Nights in 2019 when they played the New York Yankees and in 2018 when they played the Baltimore Orioles.

The 2022 season marks the first time in two years that the Blue Jays will finally be home because of COVID-19 and they are working hard to ensure Pride Night lives up to expectations. This season’s event will build off the success of past events with the goal of growing the team’s relationship with 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 Friday, June 3, are available now at bluejays.com/tickets. Gates open that night at 5:30pm.
