Gallaudet hall of fame

Gallaudet Athletics HOF Class of 2020 Q&A with Valerie Trofimenkoff McCabe

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletics Department is gearing up
for the 2020 Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony being held
virtually this Friday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. (Eastern).

note:
Valerie is unusual in that she graduated from a school for the deaf in
Canada while being an American citizen.

Gallaudet Athletics HOF Class of 2020 Q&A with William Bissell

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletics Department is gearing up
for the 2020 Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony being held
virtually this Friday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. (Eastern).

full story at:
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/news/2020-21/hofqa-bissell

note:
Bissell very easily qualifies as one of the greatest baseball
players, if not the greatest, in Gallaudet baseball history.
Misfortune, however, will affect some great athletes, both
deaf and hearing. He suffered two season-ending injuries.
First was as a freshman after only playing a few games;
NCAA granted him an extra year of eligibility. Another
great Gallaudet athlete with these two season-ending
injuries come to mind – women’s basketball great
Corina Gutierrez.

thoughts of Gallaudet athletes

Ohio changed a rule in track and field

Edward G. Ziegler, an outstanding deaf trackster
in Ohio, passed away.

part of newspaper story:
Ed never let the fact that he was deaf from an early age stop him from
participating in life. He was proud to represent North Baltimore High
School (Class of 1962) in track and field events during his high school
career. He will forever hold the Wood County record in the 100-yard dash,
set in 1962 with a time of 10.15 seconds, and ran at the Ohio State Track
and Field event his senior year. Due to his deafness, the OSHSAA made a
rule change so that the starter would be on his side of the track when he
ran so he could watch for the smoke from the gun.

random deafsports thoughts

Can we think of all these sports in which rules were changed
to benefit deaf athletes?

Baseball, boxing, swimming, track and field, hockey.

Any others?

deaf pro golfing hopeful

part of newspaper story

Hearing-impaired golfer Isaac Makokha had the Kenya Open slot in the bag
following his win at the coveted Kenya Amateur Match-play Championship
recently. Makokha hopes to become the first golfer of his kind to grace
the Kenya Open. He has been using the Safari Tour to perfect his long and
short game skills

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor, as a young man many years
ago, played softball for deaf club teams.

He vividly recalls one tournament game where the pitcher
of his team pitched a beautiful game, shutting down the
opponent. For some reason, the coach, who depended totally
on analytics, outsmarted himself, removing that pitcher
in the last inning.

The relief pitcher fell apart, giving up runs to the
opponent, costing the team the win.

DeafDigest Sports editor asked the coach why would he
pull out the hot pitcher in favor of an ineffective
reliever.

The coach defended himself, saying he did nothing
wrong as a coach.

Look back at Tampa Bay manager doing exactly the
same thing in the World Series against the Dodgers!

Hauser def. Indiana Deaf, 3-0 (25-8, 25-7, 25-20)

season is over

…………………………

Texas football

next opponent – part of newspaper story

Our Lady of the Hills can say one thing about its 2020 football season —
it’s yet to play a full game.

Once again, the Hawks jumped out to a huge first-quarter lead in its
six-man game and then coasted before the game was called in the third
quarter because OLH was leading 79-33 over San Antonio Castle Hills.

That would be the final due to the mercy rule.

Next week, the Hawks travel to face the Texas School of the Deaf, which
has moved down from 11-man football to a six-man schedule. This will also
be another district game for the 4-0 Hawks.

TSD defeated St. Augustine  (Laredo, TX) 70-25. TSD (3-2) will face a
tough matchup against Our Lady of the Hills (4-0).  The game will be
livestreamed on https://www.tappstvnetwork.com/tsdrangers/?B=203552.

Why was last DeafDigest Sports being posted in
deafdigest.com instead of deafdigestsports.com?

The deafdigestsports.com web site was hacked.

The DeafDigest webmaster has been working to restore
deafdigestsports.com web site to normalcy, but he
warned that some deafsports files may have been lost.
