Deaf athletes at NTID

according to a tweet, there are approximately 40 NTID
students that play RIT sports.


RIT rarely has deaf athletes on team sports (basketball, soccer,
baseball, hockey, etc). These deaf athletes mostly participate
in individual sports such as cross country, swimming, track, etc.

In the 1970’s RIT fielded a club football team – yet deaf
participation was always low – maybe one or two deaf
players per season.

About 15 years ago a group of NTID students wanted to establish
their own club football team. They were serious about it but
their efforts got nowhere.

Their coordinator of deaf athletes is Skip Flanagan,
himself deaf and a former player with the RIT baseball team.

He played pro baseball in independent league one season.


random deafsports thoughts

As a hobby DeafDigest Sports editor researches past
deaf players in the majors and minors. The list of
such players is several pages.

One of the players is Gil McDougald. Yankee fans of
the fifties will remember him as one of these
great infielders (2B, SS, 3B).

He became deaf because a ball hit him on the head
during practice. While he continued playing, his
deafness made him miserable – lonely and withdrawn.

Years later CI completely restored his hearing.

He played while hearing; he also played while
deaf. Does that qualify him as a “deaf” baseball
player on DeafDigest Sports’ list of deaf
baseball players?

He was not the only one who became deaf during
major league career. There were others.
