Curtis Pride

Pro Ballplayer

Curtis Pride was an outstanding high-school athlete in baseball, basketball, and soccer. Drafted by the New York Mets while attending William and Mary College on a basketball scholarship, he graduated in 1990 with a degree in Finance. On September 23, 1993, at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, he scored his first major-league hit, receiving a 5-minute standing ovation. He has had a successful 21-year career with 25 professional teams as outfielder and pinch-hitter, including the Detroit Tigers, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Montreal Expos, and New York Yankees, and (most recently) the AAA Los Angeles/Anaheim Angels. As an outgrowth of his involvement in community activism, he and his wife Lisa founded the Together with Pride Foundation, which benefits deaf and hard-of-hearing children in the South Florida and Potomac areas.
