This week I welcome to the podcast Ben Pereira, Ben works for Minor League Baseball with the job title of Specialist, Diversity & Inclusion. Before we talk pride nights we get to know Ben a little bit. His love for baseball, his bond with his grandfather and coming out. He is able to tell us personal stories from some of those pride nights. He talks about some of the problems they had, including Sean Spicer throwing out the first pitch on one of these games. How it made sense why it happened but how to prevent it in the future.
