The Richness We Gain…

I didn’t know I could be happier to be a Yankees fan until they unveiled this plaque tonight in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium:

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the events at New York City’s Stonewall Inn, which sparked the modern LGBTQ movement.

This plaque serves to honor the struggle for equality and is a reminder of the richness we gain by nurturing inclusion and diversity.

Acceptance forms the bedrock of our community, let it be known that Yankee Stadium welcomes everyone as a gathering place for all.
