For the second straight season Sean Conroy got the start on Pride Night, and like last year delivered with a gem to remember.

Conroy made history last season becoming the first active professional baseball player to come out as being gay.

He did not disappoint Friday and was dominant in his eight innings of work. The Stompers defeated the Vallejo Admirals, 11-1.
