a basketball tweet, hard to believe

My dad and your dad played basketball against each other in high school.
My dad went to a deaf institute. Your dad went to a military private. You
know what. Your dad shook hands with the deaf kids after the games. A lot
of the other schools never did.

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor played softball for a number of
deaf teams in the past years.

He remembers a coach who depended on “analytics” instead of
using his eyes to evalutate talent.

There was a teammate who had no real softball hitting skills
yet his batting average was one of the highest on the team.

So, analytics or using eyes to evaluate talent?
