Boston Red Sox Paint Pitcher’s Mound Rainbow For LGBT Pride Game

Take me out to the ballgame
From: NewNowNext
 Baseball fans celebrated Pride at Boston’s Fenway Park on Friday night, when the Red Sox took on the Detroit Tigers. The kickoff event for the city’s Pride weekend saw attendees receive special Red Sox Pride flags and the pitcher’s mound painted in rainbow hues.

 On the team’s website, the Sox proclaimed the event “the perfect way to celebrate equality and our community.”

 You can see the brightly-colored pitcher’s mound in the clip below.

And see how it was made here.

Former Tigers outfielder Billy Bean, now Major League Baseball’s first inclusion officer, was on hand for the event, as were officials from the Boston Pride Parade committee and members of the Gay Bowl XVII.

Only 13 teams MLB teams (about 40% of the league) have an LGBT Pride night, which may not seem like a big deal until you realize 19 have dedicated Star Wars and Game of Thrones nights.

The Sox’s support continued into the weekend, as team mascot Wally the Green Monster appeared at the Boston Pride parade.

Red Sox executive David Baggs came out right before last year’s Pride Day, claiming he was inspired by a speech from Bean.

“In professional sports I’ve learned that, like everyone else, I need to hustle, work hard, hold myself to a high level of grit… and most importantly be myself,” Baggs stated. “If I can’t do that, I can’t make it in any endeavor, including sports. I am so happy to finally, completely, be true to myself.”
