Dedication

Ruth Seeger departed us. She was a legendary track and field
coach at Texas School for the Deaf. The national deaf schools
track and field meet is named after her (and Berg). There
is a big irony to her participation in 1957 Deaflympics.
She entered the Deaflympics as a trackster – and won
zero medals. The American tennis group needed a female
player and she was drafted – and won a bronze!

Sports trivia

Q. Has Gallaudet ever played against Guilford in football?

A. Yes. In the first game of the 1948 season, Gallaudet lost
45-0 to Guilford College. It was the only game both teams
played each other. Gallaudet restarted football in 1947
with one game. The 1948 season started with a full schedule,
and hopes were high for a successful start to a revived
football program. It was not to be. Why is DeafDigest
Sports mentioning Guilford? It is the college where
Jane Fernandes, a deaf woman, is becoming a new president
on July 1st.

…………

Another deaf player in pro football

Munir Muwwakkill, a long time veteran of indoor professional
football leagues, is a defensive tackle with the
Florida Florida Marine Raiders team in Lakeland, FL.
He is 6’3, 335 lbs and played at Western Kentucky University

……….

Many years ago, late in the 19th century

(Ohio newspaper)

On the Banks of Yesteryear – George Kihm and the Delphos Reds

.Strike one,. the umpire shouted. Only the batter didn.t hear him. Four
pitches later the batter launched the ball over the centerfield fence for
the longest hit ever seen on the Clay Street Grounds. As he rounded the
bases the home fans roared in appreciation. Only the batter didn.t hear
them. The batter was George Kihm, star catcher for the semi-pro Delphos
Reds. And George was deaf

According to the late Ralph LinWeber, baseball researcher who was deaf,
Kihm was one of the finest defensive firstbasemen in minors. He never
played in the majors

………….

Deaf hockey in Canada

(newsppaer story)

 Hockey teams representing all regions of Canada will be in Mississauga

Austine School for the Deaf (Vermont) will close in June. What is this school’s
contribution to Gallaudet football? In the early eighties, Mark Tessier, who
played football at American School for the Deaf, transferred to Austine. He
wanted to continue playing football but the school had no football team. He
successfully petitioned the state of Vermont to allow him to play football
for a nearby high school. He had a great high school football career and
later on played Gallaudet football as a defensive tackle. And he was an
assistant coach with the football team for several years.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet’s Danny O’Donnell named NCBWA Division III National Pitcher of the Week

DALLAS – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA)
released its weekly NCAA Division III National Players of the Week
awards for the week ending March 27 and for the first time in school
history Gallaudet University has a national player of the week as
sophomore Danny O’Donnell (Olney, Md.) was selected as national
pitcher of the week.

O’Donnell, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Baseball
Pitcher of the Week, was lights out in two appearances against some
of the top teams in the country, going 2-0 on the mound and giving up
just one run while striking out 12 batters and posting a miniscule
0.64 earned run average in 14 innings of work. O’Donnell opened the
week shutting down nationally ranked Rowan University, tossing a
complete-game shutout while allowing five hits and striking out seven
batters to help the Bison win 2-0 and take down the 10th-ranked
Profs. He would shine once again in his next start, four days later,
pitching another complete game and giving up one run on five hits
while striking out five in a 3-1 win over Frostburg State University,
which came into the contest averaging 9.25 runs per game and was
receiving votes in the latest Division III Top 25 poll.

O’Donnell now leads the NEAC in ERA (0.77) while being second in both
wins (three) and strikeouts (29) for the Bison, who are 12-7 overall.

Grinnell College’s Anthony Mack was the national hitter of the week
as he batted .552 in eight games, going 16 of 29 at the plate with
two home runs, two doubles and a triple. Mack tallied 14 RBI and
scored six runs while posting a .897 slugging percentage for the
Pioneers.

This was the fourth week for the NCBWA Division III National Hitter
and Pitcher of the Week awards. The awards are voted on by a panel of
Division III members of the NCBWA. Gallaudet senior catcher Casey
Hicks (Henderson, Nev.) has received honorable mention recognition
for national hitter of the week, twice this season, on March 6 and
March 13. Last season, junior pitcher Brandon Holsworth (Beal City,
Mich.) was a honorable mention honoree twice for national pitcher of
the week.

Gallaudet upsets No. 10 Rowan, split doubleheader in Florida

LAKELAND, Fla. – For the second year in a row, the Gallaudet
University baseball team beat a ranked Rowan University squad on its
annual spring break trip at the RussMatt Central Florida
Invitational. The Bison split the doubleheader with the Profs,
winning the first game 2-0 and dropping the second 12-3, at Henley
Field. The triumph over 10th-ranked Rowan marks the biggest win in
program history.

In the first game, Gallaudet (10-6) scored the first run of the game
in the bottom of the first inning when senior JJ Klein (Cincinnati,
Ohio) reached on a Rowan error, which resulted in a RBI, as senior
Marcus Smith (Baltimore, Md.) ran home. The duo of Klein and Smith
would combine to produce the Bison’s second run of the game in the
third inning. Klein had a RBI-single to center field as Smith scored
from second base.  Smith led the team with two runs and two hits,
while Klein led the team with two RBI. The loss marked the second
loss in two days for the nationally ranked Profs.

Sophomore pitcher Danny O’Donnell (Olney, Md.) threw a gem as he held
the No. 10 Profs (7-2) scoreless in the first game. O’Donnell allowed
only five hits and recorded seven strikeouts on his way to a
complete-game shutout.

In the second game, Rowan took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning
before the Bison struck back in the top of the fourth inning with two
runs. Klein was able to score Gallaudet’s first run due to a Rowan
error as senior catcher Casey Hicks  (Henderson, Nev.) reached base
on the play. Hicks went on to score the second run as senior Chris
Guinn (McLoud, Okla.) singled to right field.  

The Profs regained the lead with two runs in the bottom of the fifth
inning. GU knotted the game at 3-3 in the top of the sixth inning as
junior Chase Magsig (Hudsonville, Mich.) doubled home junior Mitchell
Bensman (Russia, Ohio). GU couldn’t push across another run to get
the lead back in the sixth.

Rowan broke open the game in the bottom half of the sixth as the
Profs scored nine times to place the game out of reach. 

Guinn (1-1) suffered the loss as he allowed five runs (three earned)
on nine hits, one walk and struck out one in over five innings of
work. Freshman Blake Phillips (Dalton, Ga.) was ineffective as he
surrendered three runs on three hits on 12 pitches as he didn’t
record an out. Senior Tyler Crace (Westfield, Ind.) finished the game
as he got the final three outs in the sixth but not before giving up
four runs (three earned) on three hits.

Freshman Justin Strong (Charlotte, N.C.) led the team with two hits
in the second game. Rowan had six players with two hits each as the
Profs racked up 15 against the Bison.

Last year, Gallaudet defeated No. 23 Rowan, 11-10 in 11 innings, to
earn the program’s first-ever win over a nationally ranked team in
program history.

GU will wrap-up its spring break trip tomorrow (Thursday, March 20)
with a 10 a.m. game with Oglethorpe College (9-10) in Winter Haven,
Fla.

Notes: Gallaudet’s spring break game with Sewanee for March 18 was
rained out and canceled…GU added a second game with Rowan after the
Sewanee cancelation…GU will host Frostburg State on Sunday, March
23, at 1 p.m. instead of traveling to Frostburg, Md., because its
field is not playable.
