June 1st marked the very first day of Pride month, which is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group.
Major League Baseball teams have been known for celebrating in this month, all except for one team.
The Texas Rangers remain the only team doesn’t have a pride game promotion and they are not showing any indication they will have one now or in the future.
Here’s how social media reacted:
Back in 2003, the Rangers had a promotional game where it invited LGBT community groups such as Dallas’ gay and lesbian volleyball league, gay rugby and softball leagues as well as the Texas Gay Rodeo Association.
The event drew a number of anti-gay protests and nothing similar has been scheduled ever since.
