The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are going to wear American Sign Language jerseys for their game on August 19th, their Deaf Awareness Night. Curtis Pride is going to make an appearance as well, a former MLB outfielder who was born deaf.

On top of the jerseys, there will be a Q&A with Curtis Pride and he will host a free clinic for people of the deaf community. There will also be a silent inning with sign-language interpreters to help bring the game to those who cannot hear. It sounds like a complete experience and we applaud the Pelicans for bringing awareness to the deaf community. What a night at the ballpark!
