Oakland Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend Eireann Dolan heard that the team was making June 17th LGBT Pride Night at their home stadium, and when they found out people were trying to scalp tickets, Doolittle’s girlfriend did something about it. (“I will buy them from you at face value. As many as I can. No judgments. No questions asked,” she wrote) from anyone who might feel “uncomfortable” attending the LGBT Pride Night game. “Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs and as long as nobody is getting hurt, I’m happy,” she wrote. “I also can’t stop you from selling your tickets. I won’t tell you that you are wrong or that you are not allowed to think or act that way.” “From there, I will donate any tickets I purchase to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBT2 youth,” she wrote. “That way you don’t have to feel uncomfortable, and the seats don’t go to waste. It’s win-win.” Doolittle found an angel. She’s definitely a keeper.-TO
