Texas A&M relief pitcher

(newspaper story)

Texas A&M’s Cason Sherrod Rises Above the Noise

Texas A&M pitcher Cason Sherrod has been one of the Aggies’ most
dependable arms out of the bullpen all year long. The junior from Dallas
has allowed just one home run in 28 appearances and when the Aggies face
Davidson this weekend in  the College Station Super Regional, with a spot
in the College World Series on the line, A&M will depend on Sherrod to help
them get there.

However, getting the Aggies over their super regional hump isn’t the only
adversity Sherrod has overcome. Life has thrown Sherrod a few curve balls;
he’s partially deaf in both ears. But each time life tries to bring him down,
Sherrod has been able to rise above the noise, even if he can’t always hear it.

Note:

a possibility he will be drafted

a deaf collegiate  golfer on TV

A DeafDigest Sports subscriber, who loves golf,
watched the NCAA golf championship on TV
between University of Oklahoma and University
of Oregon. He saw a Oklahoma golfer wearing
two hearing aids and learned it was
Rylee Reinertson. He said Rylee has these
“deaf eyes”!
