The Washington Nationals and Team DC celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the Night OUT at the Nationals on June 4th as the Nats took down the Chicago White Sox by a score of 9-5.

The longest running Pride Night in Major League Baseball sold over 6,100 tickets which is a record high for the event. Pitcher Stephen Strasburg picked up his 100th career victory and ace relief pitcher Sean Doolittle stepped in for the save.

Doolittle showed off his Pride Month Adidas cleats which he hand painted himself to honor the LGBT community. Former U.S. Representative Barney Frank and his husband Jim Ready threw out the first pitch and the Washington Blade received the Spirit Award. (Washington Blade photos by Kevin Majoros)
