#Shortstops: Sign of the Times
Excluding the jersey donated to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum following the game, the Deaf Awareness uniforms were auctioned off after the game with the proceeds benefiting the greater Myrtle Beach deaf community.
The Pelicans also donated a non-game worn jersey to the Museum's Education Department, along with other materials from Deaf Awareness Night, that will allow the Museum to help teach lessons of diversity and inclusion through the Hall of Fame's educational outreach.
The game-worn jersey is now on display in the Museum's Today's Game exhibit.
"It's very important for us to talk about these types of stories here at the Hall of Fame," said Erik Strohl, the Museum's vice president of exhibitions and collections. "Baseball is so powerful at bringing people together and connecting people. So it's got a special ability to really bring people's attention to worthy causes and talk about stories of inclusion."
