Forbes: Seattle Mariners Owning Social Media And Not Just Sticking To Baseball

Instead of shrinking back and acting out fear that fans might be turned away by the team’s celebration of LGBT pride, the Seattle Mariners stood their ground on social media.

On the team’s Facebook account, the Mariners announced they were “proud to celebrate equality,” changing the team’s profile picture to an image of the Mariners logo in the foreground of a rainbow pride flag.
