confusion with an announced elite deaf athlete

in a previous edition of DeafDigest Sports
it was announced that deaf skateboader
Brandon White has been invited to participate
at the Dew Tour. Now it is saying it is
an adaptive skating event.

DeafDigest Sports has reserved the elite category
for the deaf that compete on the highest hearing
level in their sports – be it professional, national,
Olympics.

Best to leave it at that because not every skilled
athlete can skateboard!

more and more hearing females are getting
management and coaching positions in
MLB, NBA and NFL.

This is great.

But what about the deaf?

DeafDigest Sports editor only knows of
two deaf individuals – Michael Fischer
and Ben Wade.

Fischer, a Gallaudet graduate, is the
vice president of player personnel with
the Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA).

Ben Wade, who functioned as a hearing
person, despite his serious hearing
loss, pitched in the majors for five
seasons (late forties and early
fifties), and served the Los
Angeles Dodgers as a long time
Director of Scouting services.

His bio would not mention his deafness
but it was no secret among fans that
follow baseball closely. His past
major league teammates said Wade
did not mix too well with the
players – and was always socially
aloof, avoiding conversation with
them.

Any more deaf in these front office
positions in the future?

Hope so.

He was a pitcher for the baseball team at Gallaudet; as a junior

senior, led Gallaudet to a conference championship. When not
pitching, he played first base, a tribute to his at-bat value

Football Game needed

I hope things go back to normal this fall and we are able to have more
Deaf games for you to cover!

I recently had a team cancelled on me. So I’m looking for a team that is
able to play a 6/8 man team with LSD on Saturday, October 23rd, which is
our homecoming date.

I will make sure it is a home-home series to return the favor.
Please email me at denton.mallas@email.lsdvi.org if you are interested.

Oklahoma football

DeafDigest Sports editor asked Oklahoma football coach
Jason Sledd if his school will be playing football
this coming fall season.

The response:
Yes, that is the plan. We already scheduled 9 games.  (Crossing our fingers)

college baseball

Nolan Barr, who is deaf, has signed to play college baseball
at Andrew College in Georgia.

This college plays on the junior college level

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of Oklahoma football, DeafDigest Sports has seen over the
years (1986 to now) the schools that have started (or restarted)
football. The editor does not want to name these “new” football
schools but it seems that all of them started, played and then
dropped this sport!  The one exception is Oklahoma, and it
seems this sport is getting stronger and stronger over the
years at this school!

Very glad for this school – which has a storied history –
finishing runner ups in state 11-man championships in
1950 – in its’ just second season of varsity play. The
editor still feels it is one of the most incredible
Deaf Schools football feats ever!
