deaf trainer of a pro team wins honor

part of story

Peoria Rivermen trainer Max Finley was named the Southern Professional
Hockey League’s top trainer, the league announced Monday.

Finley also plays for the U.S. national deaf men’s team, winning a gold
medal at the 2017 world championships in Buffalo, N.Y. He helped the U.S.
won a bronze in 2015 Winter Deaflympics in Russia.

pitcher with over 100 career twins

from a tweet

Dummy Taylor (Wow what a terribly mean nickname! Deaf pitcher had 116 wins
in 9-year career)

note:
most major league pitchers do not get that many career
wins, as Taylor did. Legendary New York Giants manager
John McGraw named Taylor as his third best all-time
pitcher he ever managed. #1 pitcher Christy Mathewson
and #2 pitcher Joe McGinnity are both hall-of-famers.

college basketball player wins honor

The award honors Martin’s legacy of perseverance enduring the challenges
of a lifelong hearing disability.

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor “waits” until
there are at least 4 or 5 sports
stories from the media before going
ahead with the latest edition.

Just seems general deaf sports stories
get fewer and fewer these days.
