Myrtle Beach Pelicans Partner with Young Talkers for Fourth Annual Deaf Awareness Night

Gates will open at 6 PM for the 7:05 PM game on August 12th against the Columbia Fireflies.

Nicole Young-Cline of Young Talkers speaks with Greg about the 4th Annual Deaf Awareness Night event at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Park!

To increase awareness and raise funds for the deaf community, the Pelicans will wear specially-designed jerseys, courtesy of Young Talkers, that replace the traditional Myrtle Beach script with American Sign Language (ASL). The back of the jersey will also feature the “I Love You” sign in ASL, a strong symbol within the deaf community.

In an effort to create an inclusive experience for members of the deaf community, sign language interpreters will be infused into the Pelicans’ game day experience. Interpreters have been assigned to special sections within Pelicans Ballpark for the evening.

Gates will open at 6 PM for the 7:05 PM game against the Columbia Fireflies. Be sure to get your TICKETS!
