Rays Players Remove LGBTQ+ Logo From Team’s Uniform

Read Time:3 Minute, 5 Second


Sports franchises around the country have made public shows of support for the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month. The Rays are no different—though apparently, not every player on the team is eager to participate.

The team donned a rainbow-colored logo on Saturday as part of the team’s 16th annual Pride Night celebration. But at least five players—pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson—opted not to wear the logo, instead peeling off the rainbow version on their jerseys and wearing the standard hat, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Adam, who’s in his first season with the Rays, was chosen to speak on behalf of the group that decided not to wear the logos, and called the decision “faith-based.”
