random deafsports thoughts

Has there been a sports stadium (or arena) that has
been located very near a deaf club?

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports editor was in Detroit,
and Went to Detroit Association of the Deaf. It
was located in downtown, just a few blocks, just
an easy walking distance from the home stadium of
Detroit Tigers.
