Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher David Price attended a peaceful protest with his family in Arizona on Saturday. 

We saw many different faces, religions, and ethnicities out for one common goal, EQUALITY,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Sooner rather than later my wife and I will have to have those talks with our kids on how society truly views them. I do believe change is coming but that change is going to take time. When everyone is willing to hold others accountable for their actions and words we will see real change. I love you all and that is the way I will teach my kids. We are born full of love, hate is taught. TEACH LOVE!”

Price and his wife, Tiffany, have two children.
