Gallaudet softball

Bison softball members volunteer at 8th annual Perfect Pitch clinic at PNC
Park in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH – Members of the Gallaudet University softball program
volunteered time back on May 7 at PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh
Pirates, at the 8th annual Perfect Pitch baseball and softball clinic for
deaf and hard of hearing students. The clinic was for dozen of students
from the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, grades 7-12.

Gallaudet softball head coach Justen Burns, assistant coach Alicia Johnson
were joined by Bison student-athletes; Hailey Henshaw (Newark, Del.),
Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.), Jenny Mendis (Brook Park, Ohio) and
Jessica Monroe (Senoia, Ga.) as the group volunteered their time.

Participants got to do drills for hitting, pitching and fielding on the
PNC Park field and bullpen. The group met former Pittsburgh Pirate players
including former manager Jim Leyland along with the Pirate Parrot mascot

Gallaudet men’s basketball

GU Parent and Son Basketball Clinic a success

WASHINGTON – A dozen pairs of parents/guardians and sons participated in
the first Gallaudet University men’s basketball Parent and Son Basketball
Clinic hosted in the Field House on Sunday, June 3.

The participants learned a lot of different things about what it takes to
be a better player. Parents/guardians were able to practice with their
child in the various drills. The clinic was open to boys ages 7-14.

“At the conclusion of the clinic we talked about the A, B, C’s. A is for
academics and attitude, B is for basketball and books and C is for
character and care,” said Gallaudet men’s basketball head coach Kevin
Kovacs. “We look forward to hosting another Parent and Son clinic next
year.”

more comments about Dan Hall

Yesterday’s DeafDigest Sports mentioned Dan Hall’s
love for golf.

There was a reason why Dan only played one season
of Gallaudet baseball, as a starter at shortstop
his senior year.

He transferred to Gallaudet as a sophomore (not
as a junior as erroneously mentioned) and despite
urgings from a baseball player, he chose not to
come out for the team.

He then planned to come out for the team as a junior
and play two seasons of baseball. It was not to be,
because the program was suspended for one year because
of bad playing conditions on the baseball field.
So, Dan had to wait two years before finally playing
baseball.

An interesting tale about him, said one baseball
teammate:

He suggested that we go to Florida for a “spring break –
baseball style), using his school (St. Cloud HS) baseball
fields.   We took his advice and went there (NO COACHES,
just us boys).   AHHH!    MEMORIES

more on deaf golf from a deaf golfer

Do you realize that Michael Mabashov won the SEDGA Tournament over Tim
Dapp with his score of 71 (1 under par)?  He was down by one stroke before
going into last 9 holes.  He made 4 straight birdies on 10th – 13th holes. 
He shot 31 on back nine.
