part of newspaper story, as edited

All-Star Week spreads out across the District

Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game last came to Washington 49 years ago.

The Midsummer Classic returns this season, with Nationals Park hosting the
game on Tuesday, July 17. But these days, the game itself is just one part
of a long, celebratory week of baseball.

Other venues in the city that will host All-Star events include Gallaudet
University.

Sam Atkinson, associate athletic director for communications at Gallaudet,
said the school in Northeast Washington will host youth games in July.
There will be 11 teams from the United States and Puerto Rico, with ages
14 to 16.

“The Commissioner’s Cup Tournament will be onsite from July 11-17.
Most games will take place at the Nationals Youth Academy. A few games
will take place on campus (at Gallaudet) from July 13-15,” according to
Atkinson. The athletes “will be staying on campus at the (Model
Secondary School for the Deaf) dorms.”

Gallaudet is about three miles north of Nationals Park and is the only
university for the deaf in the United States. The Division III school’s
baseball coach is Curtis Pride, 49, a Washington native who grew up in
Silver Spring and played in the big leagues from 1993 to 2006.

Pride made his major league debut in 1993 with the Montreal Expos, who
moved to Washington in time for the 2005 season at Nationals Park.
