June is Pride Month and D-backs general manager Mike Hazen was pleased to see his organization taking part.

"I'm personally proud to work for an organization where an event like this can take place and for an organization that celebrates inclusiveness and diversity like we do," Hazen said. "We look to live those principles every day."

The panel was hosted by Joey Boy and Natasha Castles from the Morning Mess, LIVE 101.5, and included Ryan Jordan Santana (professional baseball player), Aneesh (LIVE 101.5), Jen Ramos (Baseball Prospectus), Angela Hughey (One Community president), Jonathan Hensley (LGBT brand ambassador from MillerCoors).
