Its been a lot of fun to play with Jorge, hes definitely had to overcome a lot as a deaf baseball player is very tough in this game and to see the way he has done it and handled himself has been awesome, Francoeur said.

In the next scene Reyes addresses the camera by saying, Im definitely not deaf.
