The Dodgers have now issued an apology and extended an invitation to honor the group for their valuable contributions to the LA community in the upcoming Pride Night celebration on June 16.

In an official statement, the Dodgers expressed their gratitude for the diverse feedback received from various communities, as well as the constructive dialogue within their organization and discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The team conveyed sincere apologies to the group, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and their loved ones for any distress caused by their initial decision.

The organization’s statement emphasized the team’s recognition of the Sisters’ remarkable and enduring efforts in saving lives and benefiting the community. They acknowledged the importance of expressing collective gratitude towards the Sisters for their tireless work over the past decades.

Looking ahead, the Dodgers expressed their commitment to continuing collaboration with LGBTQ+ partners. They aim to further educate themselves, strengthen the bonds that unite their diverse fanbase, and utilize their platform to support all members of the Dodgers family. The organization seeks to embrace diversity and promote inclusivity in partnership with the LGBTQ+ community.
