#MiLBPride, Part 2


As I reported last week, a record number of minor league teams are celebrating Pride Month. I posted the remaining schedule last week, but its also interesting to know what the other teams did for Pride Month. Below are the events that were held prior to last week. Plus, check out the video below from the Hartford Yard Goats.
