It may have been a disappointing crowd on Aug. 26 to witness the first-place Baltimore Orioles take on a division rival but the LGBT contingent among the fans was well represented. A total of 100 tickets allotted to the Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore was sold out.
This outing against the Tampa Bay Rays was organized by the GLCCB as a social event but it also served as a fundraiser for the organization. It was the fourth and final such game of the season with the other outings being held April, May and June. Each of those sold 25-30 tickets according to GLCCB Director of Communications Dan McEvily. Last year, a similar outing was held in conjunction with Pride and sold just under 80 tickets. The GLCCB raised $700.
