Deaf umpire has been on the job in NJ for years, but first he had to prove
skeptics wrong

part of newspaper story

FAIR LAWN — Jonathan Breuer makes it clear. He’s deaf, and you can call
him that.

On the softball and baseball fields in North Jersey, he answers to a
different title.

Umpire.

The 57-year-old Fair Lawn resident has been umpiring since 2013, and has
been working as a soccer official since before that. He loves being
involved in sports, helping his community. It makes him feel young.

He also wants to let people know that being deaf isn’t a hindrance to
doing what you enjoy.

“I want to show the world what deaf people can do,” Breuer said.

It’s well known inside baseball and softball that on a close play at first
base, the umpire is trained to watch the foot hit the bag and listen for
the sound of the ball in the glove. How does Breuer do that?

“A lot of umpires have told me you are so lucky that you can’t hear,”
Breuer said. “I was told the average umpire quits after four years. I have
been [officiating] for 13 years and I feel fine. I feel relaxed. You can
ignore all that chitter-chatter.”

he has a message to deliver. He said the only accommodation made for
Breuer is that he’ll often communicate with other umpires through email
the night before instead of having a verbal pregame meeting.

note:

he filed a lawsuit accusing the umpiring association of discriminating
against him. The newspaper story did not mention the lawsuit.  Was
it settled out of court or is it still pending?

random deafsports thoughts

See the story on the deaf umpire above. Everytime
a deaf umpire is mentioned, DeafDigest Sports
editor thinks of Maurice Potter (deceased) who
was a long time baseball umpire in Minnesota.

Two things about him. He was often asked to umpire
big time semi pro and high school games in
Minnesota. And he always umpired behind the
home plate, never on bases!

He was still umpiring into his seventies until
age caught up with him. He umpired for some
50 years before stepping away in the late
seventies.

………………………………………

2019 football schedules, 8 turned in so far

Just hoping all schedules will be turned in
before schools close for the summer.

If you have completed your football schedule, please
email it to barry@deafdigest.com

thank you
