The San Francisco Giants are among 379 Bay Area businesses that are petitioning the United States Supreme Court to declare same-sex marriage a constitutional right.
"San Francisco is the epicenter of the marriage equality movement and it is only fitting that its professional sports team would join in this effort," Giants president and CEO Larry Baer said in a statement. "The San Francisco Giants are proud to sign the brief because it speaks directly to our core values of equality and social justice for all."
The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Cisco, Wells Fargo Bank, eBay, Oracle, Electronic Arts, Intel and Hewlett-Packard are among the other constituents, according to a CBS.com report.
Couples have challenged same-sex marriage bans in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee. And the court is reportedly expected to consider whether the 14th Amendment requires states to license same-sex marriages as well as whether it requires states to recognize same-sex marriages legally carried out in other states.
A decision is expected by the end of June, according to the report.
