Only one of Chicago's MLB teams has a Pride Night planned

According to an Outsports article, 17 Major League Baseball (MLB) teams will hold Pride Nights this season.

The Chicago Cubs would be one of those teams, with its Aug. 25 game against the Colorado Rockies marking the 20th anniversary of "Out at Wrigley." However, the Chicago White Sox do not have such an event planned—at least, for now.

A separate Outsports item noted that the Cubs began the tradition in 2001 with "Gay Days"—now called "Out at Wrigley," of course. In the 18 years since, baseball teams across the nation have joined in with Pride festivities of their own.

In 2019, the Cubs actually had two Pride Nights (June 23 and "Out at Wrigley," on Aug. 25).

The White Sox have partnered with pro-LGBTQ organization Equality Illinois for past "Out at the Sox" events. And the Sox held a Pride Night in 2019, on July 23. (In 2020, crowds were kept away from stadiums because of the COVID pandemic.) However, no such collaboration is happening this year. Equality Illinois CEO Brian Johnson emailed Windy City Times that the organization is not holding "any in-person events until September, at the earliest."

Some of the other teams participating this season include the Arizona Diamondbacks (June 11), Boston Red Sox (June 10), Kansas City Royals (June 18), Los Angeles Dodgers (June 11), Minnesota Twins (July 6), Pittsburgh Pirates (Aug. 14) and San Francisco Giants (June 11-12).

Windy City Times has reached out to the White Sox, but has not received a response.
