Debi Skinner Australian basketball update

The mother of Debi Skinner emailed DeafDigest Sports an
update on her daughter’s stats.

With the Southern Tigers team in the Australian Premier
Women’s League, she is the team’s leading scorer with
17.6 points per game in 16 games played.

random deafsports thoughts

The late Jerald Jordan operated the Deafympics with an
iron fist. His fluency with the international sign
language and his charisma made peace with the warring
factions. When he retired and stepped down, the
Deaflympics were never the same (hint, the crooked
Russian president of the Deaflympics body).

Sad to say!

Gallaudet baseball

Curtis Pride to throw the first pitch

In recognition of the 28th anniversary of the signing of the Americans
with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Orioles will host Celebrate ADA Day at
Oriole Park on Thursday, July 26, when the Orioles host the Tampa Bay Rays
at 7:05 p.m. ET.

As part of Celebrate ADA Day, the Orioles will host a pregame, on-field
ceremony to recognize members of various groups who have been positively
impacted by the implementation of the ADA, including the Mid-Atlantic ADA
Center, the Maryland Department of Disabilities (MDOD), Centers for
Independent Living, Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, v-Link,
the Special Olympics, and several chapters of The Arc.

The Orioles will welcome Laura Owens, President of TransCen in Rockville,
Md., to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. TransCen is a nonprofit
organization dedicated to improving education and employment for youth
with disabilities. Additionally, former Major League outfielder Curtis
Pride, who serves as MLB’s Ambassador for Inclusion, will catch Owens’
ceremonial first pitch. Pride, a Maryland native who was born deaf, played
in 421 Major League games across parts of 11 seasons.
