The Somerset Patriots the Yankees Double-A Affiliate has teamed up RWJBarnabas Health to host Pride Night at TD Bank Ballpark on August 23rd.  They will take on the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Toronto Blue Jays Double-A Affiliate. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., and gates open at 6pm.  

The event will feature the Babs Siperstein PROUD Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset and the PROUD Gender Center of New Jersey at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, which provide comprehensive health care services for the LGBTQ+ community, including primary care services, hormone therapy, gender affirmation surgery, behavioral health services and support groups.

Fans in attendance will be able to visit displays on the concourse to get information and engage with organizations involved in inclusion and working closely with members of the LGBTQ+ community.

“We are excited to host Pride Night at the ballpark with our great partners at RWJBarnabas Health,” said Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. “Since we opened in 1999, we have always looked at our home as a safe and accessible environment for everyone in our community. It’s something that we take great pride in and look to make it a special night for our LGBTQ+ fans enjoying a game again or for the very first time.”

The Patriots and RWJBarnabas Health will be fundraising for LGBTQ+ organizations at the ballpark through a 50/50 raffle held on site.

The Team Store will have special pride t-shirts and apparel available for purchase at the ballpark and online at somersetpatriots.com.
