Getting By

Monday, May 2nd, 2011 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Pitching your very first baseball game as a college athlete is something most ballplayers dream of. For Joe Simpson, this was no different. What was different for Joe was that he was contending with more than just the batter standing at home plate.

“As you can imagine, I was very nervous,” said Joe. “I was taking a lot of time between pitches, but I was striking batters out. That’s why I was surprised to find my coach very agitated with me when I came in to the dugout. It wasn’t until one of my teammates pulled me aside that I learned why. It turns out that he was yelling at the top of his lungs for me to speed things up the whole time. I assumed at the end of the game he would punish me for ignoring him by making me run wind sprints until dark, but luckily a couple of the other guys on the team spared me by telling the coach I wasn’t wearing my hearing aids, which I always left in my locker while pitching.”

Joe suffered from hearing loss at a very young age. For a while he learned to just “get by.” Ironically, his father made his living as a hearing specialist and was able to identify the problem, fitting Joe with his first pair of hearing aids at the age of nine.

Because pitching in baseball involves quick, powerful movements, it was impractical, if not impossible, to wear the devices while playing. But that experience reminded Joe of what he and others miss from life’s most basic experiences. We experience so many wonderful things life has to offer through our sense of hearing. For Joe, it’s the crack of a bat hitting a baseball, or the click of a golf ball traveling towards the cup, or his children laughing and playing.
