Madison High baseball player shows signs of success

In a sport where players and coaches constantly communicate using signs, Andy Villasenor feels right at home playing baseball. The Madison High School senior lost his hearing as an infant, so he uses sign language to communicate with his Warhawks coaches and teammates. “Some deaf people think they can’t do it because they are deaf, but they need to go and try it, try new things and they will find they can do it,” Villasenor said through his interpreter.
