“We are extremely proud to stand with the LGBTQ+ community,” team prez and CEO Larry Baer said, “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.”
Pride Month began Tuesday as the calendar officially rolled over into June … and the Giants are going all in to make sure they honor the moment.
In addition to the uniform changes … SF officials also say they’ll adorn their scoreboard with Pride colors and wrap Willie Mays Plaza palm trees with the hues as well.
“Very proud that the San Francisco Giants are taking this step,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Tuesday. “Very proud to be part of it.”
“Looking forward to the impact and the support that we can provide for the LGBTQ+ community.”
