Gallaudet baseball

Season Preview – Strong team chemistry ready to propel Bison in 2020

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team is healthy and ready
to embrace the 2020 season after suffering five season-ending injuries
last season. The Bison return the majority of its team from last year as
the team chemistry is high heading into the new season.

GU head coach Curtis Pride, now in his 12th season, is excited with what
he has seen thus far in the preseason training camp. With a lot of
talented veterans returning combined with the team’s positive attitude and
motivation, Gallaudet should have a strong chance to move up the North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) standings this season.

“This year’s team chemistry is the best I have ever had,” said Pride. “We
just want to compete, taking this season one game at a time. Our goal is
to make the NEAC tournament and just continue to improve.”
