Law and Pride TTM
I received two TTM requests back very quickly this past week, both of former players who are now coaching collegiately.
Vance Law is the baseball coach at Brigham Young University. He was named the head coach back in 1999 and has led BYU to a conference title and two tournament titles since then.
Curtis Pride is in his second year as head coach at Gallaudet University, the noted school for the deaf and hard of hearing in Washington, D.C. I have a friend who is an audiologist and we have often talked about writing something for publication on deaf ballplayers in professional baseball. Mr. Pride agreed for us to interview him and I am planning on catching the Bisons play against York College at the end of March.
The Bison are looking to overcome a difficult season last year which saw them go 1-18 in the Capital Athletic Conference. The snow that has plagued the region has not helped with Gallaudet's preparation for the upcoming season. Five games have been snowed out already but the team heads for Florida in a couple of weeks.
Thanks to both Mr. Pride and Mr. Law!
