a reason to quit umpiring

there was a newspaper story today -

Watch parents turn a girls’ softball game into a cleat-throwing brawl
“I just think it wasn’t very appropriate,” a resident of Kingsport,
Tenn., said after both 12-and-under teams had been banned.

it reminds DeafDigest Sports of a deaf umpire in baseball.
He quit umpiring because he was assaulted in a game -

and it was just a Little League game when immature adults got too
involved in a sport for kids!

………………………………….

a confused deaf tennis player

A deaf tennis player plays tennis with his friends once
a week.

The format they play is round-robin.

The confused deaf tennis player never heard of the
word “round-robin” and thought it meant “round games”

He was confused because he is not a sports fan and just
liked to play tennis!
