The night, which is presented by Young Talkers, marks the 4th annual event for the team
August 12th will mark the return of Deaf Awareness Night to Pelicans Ballpark presented by Young Talkers. 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. The club will auction off the commemorative jerseys with proceeds benefiting the Pelicans Organization for the Deaf.
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. Fans needing an interpreter for the game on August 12 should purchase tickets online at myrtlebeachpelicans.com using promo code DA2022. The dedicated interpreter sections for the evening will be 107 and 208. Additionally, the first 500 fans through the gates will receive a gift bag courtesy of Young Talkers.
Gates will open at 6 PM for the 7:05 PM game against the Columbia Fireflies (affiliate of the Royals). For tickets and additional information visit myrtlebeachpelicans.com/asl.
