Trenton Thunder Holding First Ever Pride Night in June
Local minor league baseball team, the Trenton Thunder, will host its first ever Pride Night at Arm & Hammer Park on Monday, June 10th.
They've partnered with the New Jersey LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and have a fun night planned. The first 1,000 people, 14 and older, through the gates will each get a pride hat, and according to the Trenton Thunder's website there will be a "special pre-game event."
The Trenton Thunder General Manager/COO, Jeff Hurley is excited and said, "We have always striven to create an inclusive environment at ARM & HAMMER Park. I look at our Pride Night as a bedrock of our continued emphasis on the fact that everyone is welcome and accepted here."
Billy Bean will be a special guest that night. He was Major League Baseball's Ambassador for Inclusion back in 2014. He's played in the majors for the Dodgers, Padres, and Tigers . He said on milb.com, "A night like this is another bright example of baseball's effort to make every fan feel welcome and supported. I look forward to attending the game and meeting as many Thunder fans as possible."
