PHOTOS: Night Out at the Nationals
Over 3,500 tickets were sold to members of the LGBT community and their allies for the annual Night OUT at Nationals Park on June 5. The Washington Nationals topped the Tampa Bay Rays through the heroics of ace pitcher, Max Scherzer, who threw 81 of 99 pitches for strikes. The final score was 4-2.
Hosted by Team DC, the event is among 23 LGBT community nights in Major League Baseball this year. Nats relief pitcher Sean Doolittle donated a rainbow cake for the participants as a show of support regarding the recent Supreme Court’s wedding cake ruling. Doolittle’s wife, Eireann Dolan, and Scherzer’s wife, Erica May-Scherzer were on hand for the festivities. (Washington Blade photos by Kevin Majoros)
