The event, which runs from Thursday, May 12th until Sunday, May 15th, is a week where MLB honors civil rights activists.

Ludacris spoke on his contribution to the cause, and shared what the performance meant to him.

“I’m a fan of baseball, and I am honored to be a part of MLB’s family and tradition of being a pioneering organization for civil rights, social justice and equity,” says Luda.
