and scroll down until you see the schedule

just hope three remaining schools will respond
before all schools close up for the summer

………………………………………

Major League baseball draft

Washington Nationals drafted pitcher Colin Morse in the
26th round. He was a pitcher with Shenandoah University
baseball team.

Shenandoah is one of the nation’s best NCAA-III baseball
teams.

Gallaudet played against Shenandoah in recent seasons
(2018, 2017, 2016).

Did Colin Morse pitch against Gallaudet.

No.

Either it means he was not in turn, as part of the
rotation, to pitch against Gallaudet or the
coach decided not to use him against Gallaudet.

It means one thing – that NCAA-III, where Gallaudet
plays in, is where baseball scouts look very hard
for good players that could possibly, some day,
play in the majors!

elite men’s fastpitch softball team

Maclaine Lowe, who is deaf, is listed as one of the
elite men’s softball players in Australia.

He is on the list of elite softball players
from Southern Australia

right now it is off season for him since weather in
Australia is opposite of ours – it is almost summer
right here in USA while it is cold weather right now
in Australia.

………………………………………..

catcher really deaf or not deaf

there was a story in a small town newspaper
about John Keene, a freshman catcher with the
Old Dominion (VA) University baseball team.

It says:
As a young child, John battled hearing loss until the age of five

“I’m not completely sure how my life was while I was deaf,” John
said. “I remember having a lot surgeries and the process of trying to
get my hearing back, but I don’t really remember what it was like to be
deaf. The process included countless surgeries and at times I would sit in
a room with headphones and try to listen for beeping or high-pitched
noises.”

note:
his explanation is vague. Was he referring to the CI as the operation,
or something else that made him hearing?

………………………………………..

summertime reading

there is a book:
Dad, Jackie, and Me

it is about a hearing son, deaf father and Jackie Robinson
during the 1947 baseball season with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

The book is described as follows:
Dad, Jackie, and Me is a story about a boy and his dad, who is deaf.
It’s not a story about deafness. It’s a story that simply accepts
deafness and includes a deaf character in an ordinary story about a dad
and a boy doing an ordinary thing: sharing their love for a favorite
baseball player

Canada deaf women’s volleyball team

part of newspaper story

Local Resident Competes In France With Canada’s Deaf Volleyball Team

Paige McDonald, a resident from Roseisle, competed with Team Canada’s Deaf
Women’s Volleyball Team in Montepellier, France last month. It was the
80th Celebration of the Deaf Sports International Competition.

McDonald was the only Manitoban on the team with teammates from across
Canada, including B.C. and Nova Scotia.

The team went undefeated, playing four, best of two games before claiming
victory in the gold medal game

………………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports knew, for weeks about Canadian women’s
participation in the deaf volleyball tournament in France.

There were quite a few stories about Canada being in that
tournament – but not a single word on who the other deaf
teams were and the tournament scores, nor until just now,
the name of the tournament.

When newspaper stories lack specific details, then it can
be frustrating!
