The San Francisco Giants will wear uniforms on Saturday that honor the LGBTQ community, becoming the first Major League Baseball team to do so.
June is Pride Month.
The Giants will incorporate the 11 designated Pride colors into their uniform. The jerseys will have a sleeve patch with the colors, and the logo on the team hat will be specially redesigned with the colors.
“We are extremely proud to stand with the LGBTQ community as we kick off one of the best annual celebrations in San Francisco by paying honor to the countless achievements and contributions of all those who identify as LGBTQ and are allies of the LGBTQ community,” Giants president and CEO Larry Baer said in a team statement.
The Giants High-A affiiliate, the Eugene Emeralds, wore similar uniforms in 2019. They were the first minor-league team to recognize Pride Month.
The Giants are scheduled to host the Chicago Cubs in a four-game series beginning Thursday at Oracle Park.
