he Los Angeles Dodgers are celebrating Pride and adding a second night to Pups at the Park this season.
Pups at the Park sold out its first date on May 14, thereby encouraging the staff to add a second event on Monday, Sept. 5.
Presented by Lucy Pet Foods, Pups at the Park will see the Dodgers taking on their rivals the San Francisco Giants at 7:10 p.m.
Dodger fans can purchase a ticket package for the right field pavilion and bring their dog to the game. Prior to the game, fans will be able to parade their dog for a walk around the warning track.
On both dates, the Lucy Pet Foods dog, Macho, will lead the parade. Macho set the Guinness World Record for the fastest dog touching all the bases at a Major League Stadium at Dodger Stadium in 2021.
Seats in the right field pavilion are limited and must be purchased through dodgers.com/pups after signing a waiver. The first 40,000 fans attending the game on May 14 will also receive a bonus, as the Dodgers will honor one of their Hall of Fame pitchers in the late great Don Drysdale with a bobblehead night.
On Friday, June 3, the Dodgers will don custom on-field pride caps as the organization celebrates its ninth LGBTQ+ Night, presented by Blue Shield of California, at Dodger Stadium on June 3. These special caps will also be sold at the Top of the Park and the Left Field Team store, while supplies last.
Eight days later, history will be made in San Francisco on June 11 as both the Dodgers and Giants take the field at Oracle Park in San Francisco wearing their respective team’s pride caps.
“The Los Angeles Dodgers are proud to stand with and recognize the LGBTQ+ community in Los Angeles and globally,” said Stan Kasten, president and chief executive officer, Los Angeles Dodgers.
“The Dodgers have a history of breaking barriers, and we’re proud to be a part of another chapter in MLB history as the Dodgers and Giants each wear their team’s pride caps on June 11. While our organizations have a long-storied rivalry on the field, we stand together when it comes to equality for all.”
Erik Braverman, senior vice president of marketing, communications and broadcasting, added, “The Dodgers annual Pride Night has become one of the most anticipated nights of the season. I am incredibly proud to have the added element of the on-field caps this year. I look forward to sharing these historic games with members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies.”
Fans who purchase a special ticket package to the June 3 game will receive an exclusive commemorative Dodger LGBTQ+ game jersey. Special guests and activities will take place prior and during the game. For the complete list of events and to purchase tickets, visit dodgers.com/lapride.
Additionally, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation will donate 50% of the proceeds of the 50/50 raffle to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the world’s largest provider of programs and services for LGBT individuals.
