When the Seattle Mariners play host to the Chicago Cubs this Sunday, they will hoist the Pride flag at Safeco Field.

That may not seem like a big deal with the strides that have recently been made towards equality in sports, but according to Congressman Adam Smith, the Mariners will be the first team in MLB history to do so:

Proud to be a .@Mariners fan as they will become first @MLB team to fly #Pride flag at a game...via.@SeattleOutProud

Seattle's Pride Parade, which celebrates "Equality: Passed, Present & Future," according to, will occur on the same day as the June 30 game, marking the perfect time for the city of Seattle and the Mariners organization to proudly wave the rainbow-colored flag.

This marks yet another step towards the complete acceptance of the LGBT community that we have seen in the sports world this year

What an historical event. Seattle beats cities like San Francisco to the punch on this important issue. How proud I am to live in this state.

Not surprising. Washington is a huge lib world.  Just sad to see though. The libs won this fight. Not a fair one though. I don't care if you are gay. I do care how the gay nazi agenda forced the issue on the rest of us.  May God have mercy on us.

Good grief.  :thud:
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
