out with a 16-1 victory.

Deaf Sports Trivia
Q. Baseball is being played on the Gallaudet campus
this summer. What is this all about?
A. DC Grays, a team in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball
League (which uses wooden bats) plays its home games
at Hoy Field. The Gallaudet administration has nothing
to do with the DC Grays operations. According to the
DC Grays website, two Gallaudet players – William
Bissell and Tommy Barksdale is with the team. The first
game is today. Hope our Gallaudet players do well.
The Grays have players from many NCAA-I baseball programs,
whereas Gallaudet plays on the NCAA-III level.
