I did not know there's a blind major-league baseball commentator.

It's been a weird year for him, as he usually takes a lot of cues about how the game is going from the fan reactions. But the quiet is not without its benefits. "He can better sense how hard a ball was hit or whether a pitch was a fastball based on the sound it makes when it punches the catcher’s glove."

He can HEAR a fastball! That's amazing.

@error_1202 this is awesome! Holy heck he can hear this level of detail, wowowow
