random deafsports thoughts

When deaf sports news are slow in the summer months,
are we interested in deaf sports, not played in USA,
but popular in other nations?

Examples are cricket, bowls, Australian Rules Football,
rugby, soccer, etc?

Deaf student uses sign language to announce new Exeter City signing

part of newspaper story, as edited and revised

Announcing new signings on social media has become common,
especially among teams in British soccer.

The EFL League Two side invited Kenny, a 19-year-old student of the Exeter
Deaf Academy, to use sign language to tell fans about their new player –
centre-back Aaron Martin.

“Exeter City tell us their social media posts attracted a great response
and we are really touched by the City supporters’ positive reaction to
Kenny and the interest it has created,” Helen Trebble, Marketing Manager
at Exeter Deaf Academy, told the Press Association.

note:

Do we find deaf people making announcements of signings of
popular American athletes?

An example – will the deaf person announce where LeBron James
will sign?

Cason Sherrod update

He is pitching for the Gulf Coast League Marlins

a brief story said:
The GCL Cardinals later scored nine runs in the eighth to put the game out
of reach against GCL Marlins

William Jimenez singled twice, scoring two runs for GCL Cardinals.

Ty Cohen (1-0) got the win in relief while Cason Sherrod (1-1) took the
loss in the Gulf Coast League game.

another story said Marlins “saved” money by signing 7th round Sherrod after
spending so much money on their earlier round draft choices.
