“We are extremely proud to stand with the LGBTQ+ community as we kick off one of the best annual celebrations in San Francisco by honoring the countless accomplishments and contributions of all who identify as LGBTQ+ and are allies of the LGBTQ+ community,” Giants President and CEO Larry Baer said in the statement.

The uniform decision is the latest from the Giants organization to be ahead of the rest of MLB. In 2019, the Giants High-A affiliate Eugene Emeralds wore pride jerseys and became the first Minor League Baseball team to incorporate the colors into their uniform.
