The Detroit Tigers will reportedly donate money from ticket sales for their upcoming "Pride Night" game to charities that support transgender surgeries and puberty blockers for children.

The MLB team says, in honor of Pride Night on June 1, "Each special ticket includes a game ticket, exclusive Detroit Tigers Pride t-shirt, and a donation to a local LGBTQ+ organization of your choice."

The National Review reports that fans who purchase tickets for the June 1 event can choose from a list of organizations they'd like their donation to go to, and the list includes several groups that promote or provide transgender transitions for children.

The options for ticket-buyers include groups like the Trans Sistas of Color Project, whose website references "Trans Minor Rights" and the empowerment of "transgender youth to make their own decisions regarding puberty blockers."

One LGBT charity on the list was the Ruth Ellis Center which reportedly offers "transition care for transgender youth," including surgery.

And Corktown Health is another example of an "LGBTQ-focused primary health care center" that offers "gender-affirming care" such as hormone therapy for gender transitions. 

The center indicates that it "may see patients as young as 16 years old."

Nate Hochman with National Review posted a series of comments on Twitter expressing his concern.

Hochman concluded his comments by asking if Tigers fans realize that this is where their money is going.

CBN News reached out to the Detroit Tigers for comment and waited three days for a response but did not hear back at the time of publication.
