At least 20 Major League Baseball teams have reportedly promoted or funded groups that support child gender transitions as part of a larger embrace of social justice policies.

The league's website now features a page promoting texts such as the New York Times' 1619 Project, which ties the "true founding" of America to the arrival of slave ships, and Ibram X. Kendi's "How to Be an Antiracist," which argues that the U.S. system is entirely corrupted with racial prejudice. 

Nearly every MLB team has hosted LGBT+ "Pride Nights" over the past two decades, with the Texas Rangers remaining the only one out of the 30 MLB teams to never do so, according to Outsports. Many major teams have used the event to promote or fund organizations that support children as young as 12 who are seeking to change genders, including through surgery and hormones.

Out of the 29 major league teams to hold pride events this summer, at least 20 have funded or promoted organizations involved in child gender transitions, according to an analysis published Wednesday by the National Review.

At least six of those teams supported groups that lobby for "trans-inclusive" K-12 sports and "gender-affirming" lessons for elementary students, and against restrictions on child sex-change operations, the outlet stated.

Five MLB teams including the Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Guardians have reportedly partnered with groups that perform medical sex transitions on children.
