HEARING IMPAIRMENT DOESN’T HINDER UT’S HANNON

Standing on the dugout steps, Cailin Hannon soaked in the scene. An hour
earlier, the ballpark had been buzzing with noise. The ping of the bat,
the pop of the glove, the cheers from the dugout.

Once only muffled sounds to Hannon, the full richness of a softball game
at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium has become more magnified since she arrived
at Tennessee.

Hannon is 40 percent deaf in both ears. The sophomore outfielder navigated
most of her life by having people just talk louder or asking them to
repeat themselves.

Hannon isn’t the only current or former UT athlete with a hearing
impairment.

Former Lady Vols basketball star Tamika Catchings was born with moderately
severe hearing loss in both ears. She wore hearing aids when she was
young, but threw them into a field in the third grade after being teased
mercilessly.

Catchings didn’t get them replaced until she began playing at UT and
legendary head coach Pat Summitt encouraged her to wear hearing aids again
and visit the university speech therapist.

random deafsports thoughts

Could a deaf person earn a full time living as
an umpire and as referee (baseball, softball,
football, basketball)?

A deaf man researched this topic and determined
it was impossible to make a full time living out
of it, saying the incomes earned is not enough
for that purpose.

Pocket money? Yes. Full time, no!

Purdue football

part of a web posting

Today’s LGWS pod actually has a Purdue connection, as Travis and Paul talk
about Purdue’s first football coach, Albert Berg. What makes this a
subject for the LGWS pod? Well, Coach Berg only coached one game at
Purdue, their first ever game, which they lost; he also happened to be
deaf and struggled at speaking as a result of his deafness.

note:
Albert Berg was one of the charter members of Gallaudet’s pioneering
football team of 1883. Gallaudet went 3-0 in this three game season,
all three wins were shutouts.

………………………………………
