“Coach Curtis Pride and the Gallaudet baseball team inspire us all,” said Incapital Chief Executive Officer John Radtke. “We are very proud to support the courage, discipline and determination embodied in the entire Bison team.”

“I was really encouraged and excited by the outpouring of support and interest we had in the tournament last year,” said Coach Pride. “We welcome Incapital’s involvement as title sponsor and very much appreciatetheir support in moving us closer to our goal of doubling the level of funds we raise this year to support the Gallaudet baseball program.”
