Curtis Pride took part in last night's MLB Celebrity Softball game in San Diego along with Hall of Famers and Oscar winners. The deaf former major leaguer hit a two-run homer and also saved an extra base hit with a spectacular catch in left field. He was mobbed by teammates after his heroics. Pride helped his American League team beat the National League team by a score of 8-7. If you want to see for yourself, ESPN will broadcast the game after tonight's Home Run Derby.
