“Never Forgive” will be the first movie filmed locally (Kentucky) with

Silent Natural,” a biopic about early deaf Major League Baseball player
William “Dummy” Hoy, were filmed at the Historic RailPark and Train
Museum.

the Ohio State School for the Deaf, Dundon went on to play several years
of professional baseball. He had two seasons with the Columbus Buckeyes
before retiring and becoming an umpire. During his hitch with the Buckeyes
in 1883 and 1884, Dundon had a record of 9-20 and a 4.25 ERA.

Columbus Buckeyes, at that time, was a team in the
major leagues.

newspaper story

INTERNATIONAL REPRESENTATION

The Warrior basketball program has been nationally-relevant for awhile due
to its success on the court but redshirt sophomore Jason Boateng is taking
the Indiana Tech name to an international level.

The 6-foot-8 forward is representing the United States in the 2018 World
Deaf Basketball Championships in Washington, D.C. through Saturday.

“Representing your country in anything that you do is of the highest
regard,” Albert said. “Jason is such a good kid and has such a great
heart. It is definitely a blessing to our program.”

Boateng has helped the United States to a pair of routs over Israel and
Australia and had a double-double in the latter victory.

“He is one of those kids that is a gentle giant,” Albert said. “He
cares about everybody else. You love to see Jason smile. He has an
infectious smile. We are blessed to have him in our family

random deafsports thoughts

Past Gallaudet football teams played at Garlic Field, located
near the current football field on the campus.

Why Garlic? No one really knows; growing garlic was probably
one of the few agricultural courses Gallaudet offered way
back years ago.

No more Garlic Field. The football field was officially named
Hotchkiss Field in 1924.
