(EDGE) The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated Pride in a big way Friday. According to Out Sports, the baseball team sold 6,800 Pride Night package tickets for its annual event at Dodgers stadium, making it the most tickets ever sold by a team for Pride Night.

In addition to the huge turnout, seven same-sex couples were featured on the Dodger's Kiss Cam. A description of a YouTube clip posted by the baseball team reads: "The Los Angeles Dodgers didn't shy away from showing same-sex couples on the in-game Kiss Came Friday, June 9, as they captured at least seven couples sharing smooches. It was part of the team's annual Pride Night, celebrating the LGBT community. The team sold nearly 7,000 Pride Night package tickets."

Out Sports writer Cyd Zeigler added: "The Dodgers have created one of the hallmark Pride Nights - if not the single premier LGBT event - in Major League Baseball, so it's not a surprise that the LGBT community would respond so positively."

Out Sports also notes gay and transgender choruses sang the National Anthem at the event, where the Dodgers played against the Cincinnati Reds, and LGBT people threw out the opening pitch. In addition the Variety Gay League played kickball in the outfield before the game started and the Dodgers created T-shirts with the team's logo in rainbow colors.
