Imagine a baseball game with no pumped-in music, and no announcers. Just baseball.
It’ll happen, if only for an inning, in Rochester, N.Y. next month when the Rochester Red Wings, the Minnesota Twins AAA baseball team, holds “Deaf Culture Day.”
American Sign Language interpreters will be stationed around the ballpark, and one inning will be a “silent inning.”
The team will wear uniforms that sign out the team’s name.

Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
