LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers will host their first lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender night on Sept. 27.

The team said Friday that LGBT Night Out will feature a celebrity first pitch, the national anthem performed by a special guest with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and fireworks at Dodger Stadium for the game against Colorado.

Other major league teams have hosted similar events.

The Dodgers are partnering with Tom Whitman of Flip Events for the event. He said the Dodgers “have been standing on the right side of history from the days of Jackie Robinson through today.”

Every season, the Dodgers honor various groups with special recognition and festivities.
