Outsports reports:

Pride nights will be a big draw in Major League Baseball this season, with 21 of the 30 teams hosting an event for their LGBT fans.

The Cubs will have two such nights — June 10 and Aug. 26 — with most of the other 20 teams hosting events in June, LGBT Pride month. The San Diego Padres had the earliest night, April 27.

As far as we can determine, only three teams — the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Angels — have never held any sort of Pride night, a streak that will continue this year barring a last-minute addition. The National League West is the only division with all five teams having a Pride event in 2018.

See the full Outsports story here, including the schedule of Pride night for each team.

TGA Editor's Note: The other six teams not holding Pride night this year are the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, and Miami Marlins -- so "boo" to them.

UPDATE: Since this article was published, the Reds and White Sox now plan on having a Pride Night.
