Gallaudet baseball

Curtis Pride is featured in Washington Times today
(don’t confuse it with Washington Post, two
completely different newspapers.

Selected comments:
And when it comes to finding athletes, Pride points out there are only so
many deaf and hard-of-hearing high school baseball players in the country.

“The biggest challenge is recruiting,” said Pride, who was born deaf
but reads lips very well. “I probably have the most difficult job of
college coaches for recruiting. I recruit deaf or hard-of-hearing players.
There are not that many out there. Once I get the player I have to develop
the skill to get them up to the college level.”

Three of his former players appeared in professional independent leagues,
and five have played in the Maryland-based Cal Ripken Collegiate League.

Pride has a book about Hoy in his office and would like to see Hoy gain
Hall of Fame status. That is one of his many causes, including being a
role model for his players
