Hispanic Athletes Learns From West Palm Professor

Posted on July 25, 2007. Filed under: Education, News & Politics, United States |

“Batista credits the instruction he received from Dr. Lynette Nadal, an English professor at Northwood University in West Palm Beach. For 17 years, Nadal has devoted much of her time to teaching Hispanic players English as a second language and working to improve their life skills.

“Before her, we had no one,” said Batista, 36, a former Weston and Wellington resident who lives in Miami. “I don’t know where the process would be without her. In the beginning, she taught enough English to understand baseball, but baseball is a world of signs. Most of what you do can be taught with signs.”

Nadal recognized that Hispanic players had a greater need for English than baseball.”
