Cash: Rays Players Not Wearing LGBTQ Logos Won’t Divide Team

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Numerous Tampa Bay Rays gamers determined to not put on rainbow-colored logos on their uniforms as a part of the workforce’s annual “Pride Night” on Saturday that acknowledged the LGBTQ neighborhood.

Tampa Bay Rays supervisor Kevin Cash addressed it after Sunday’s sport, saying he does not suppose it’s going to negatively affect the clubhouse as a result of discussions among the many gamers over previous few weeks have been constructive and emphasised the worth of differing views.

“First and foremost, I feel the group has achieved a very good factor to have Pride Night’s supporting our homosexual neighborhood to come back out and have a pleasant evening on the ballpark,” Cash mentioned. “Impressed that our gamers have had these conversions and we wish to assist our gamers that select to put on or select to not put on to the very best of our capabilities.”

Reliever Jason Adam was amongst those that opted out, and mentioned it was a “faith-based determination” for him.

“It’s simply what we imagine the approach to life he’s (Jesus) inspired us to reside for our good, to not withhold,” Adam instructed the Tampa Bay Times. “But we love these women and men, we care about them and we would like them to really feel secure and welcome right here.”

 

Political Cartoons

 

Earlier this yr, Florida legislators handed a legislation, which Gov. Ron DeSantis signed, that forbids classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender id in kindergarten by means of third grade. Critics argue that the legislation’s true intent is to marginalize LGBTQ individuals and their households.

Members of the LGBTQ neighborhood took half in pregame actions and mini LGBTQ flags got out to followers.

Saturday’s attendance was 19,452, above the season common of 16,868. The turnout for Sunday’s sequence finale in opposition to the Chicago White Sox was 11,162.
