House/Garden Baseball player never heard the cheers By NANCY CHURNIN / The Dallas Morning News Imagine you are standing at home plate, your bat poised, waiting for the very first pitch of your very first major league game. Are you excited? Sure! But imagine that instead of the cheers of the crowd, you hear ... silence. Because you're deaf. Students get in the game Jacob Houghton, 14, plays Dummy Hoy, and Amy Borger, 14, plays Dummy Hoy's conscience in The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy , which is being performed by 13 freshmen at Garland High School. Amy shows up in key moments, when Dummy is remembering something or trying to make a decision. Both students have learned more than they expected in doing this play. Director Patty Schubert, a theater teacher at the high school, says she wanted to do the show ever since she saw it at the International Thespian Society festival six years ago in Denton.

Extractions: Visit LimaOhio.com William Ellsworth Hoy, whose selection to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame was announced last week, ranks as the greatest baseball player ever to come out of the Lima area. And that's just the beginning of the story. Born May 23, 1862, at Houcktown in Hancock County, Hoy was left deaf and mute at age 3 as a result of meningitis. In keeping with baseball custom of the time, he was automatically assigned the nickname "Dummy," which he shared with such other deaf players as pitcher Luther Taylor of the New York Giants and catcher-first baseman George Kihm, a longtime minor leaguer from Delphos. Around the beginning of Billy Hoy's career, a Lima newspaper referred to him as "Hoy, the great freak." Hoy played 18 years of professional baseball, 14 of them in four different major leagues. Regarded as one of the 19th century's outstanding center fielders, he also stole nearly 600 bases, scored 100 or more runs in a season nine times and compiled a lifetime batting average of .288. Educated at the Ohio School for the Deaf in Columbus and trained as a shoemaker, he gave up that trade for a chance to play ball in 1886. He eventually spent five seasons with the Cincinnati Reds and remained in the major leagues until 1902. After that he returned to the minors for one more year, playing 212 games for Los Angeles and leading the Pacific Coast League in runs scored - at age 41.

Extractions: Literature Specials Weekly Devotion - #3 Read: I Corinthians 1:16 - 31 Hoy Was No Dummy "God uses the weak things to confound the mighty..." I Corinthians 1:27. Reprint from USA Today - May 6, 1987 "Umpires learned signs from 'Dummy.' It was a cruel nickname even for the times, but William Ellsworth 'Dummy' Hoy not only handled it and the hearing and speech handicap that prompted it, he excelled as a major league baseball player for fourteen years (1888-1902). Hoy is credited with inspiring umpire signals. Hoy was deaf and as a means of communicating with him the umpires began signaling or signing 'safe' and 'out.' A deaf man inspired the beginning of hand signals used in baseball. "William Ellsworth 'Dummy' Hoy's statistics were 2,054 hits, l,798 games, .288 batting average. These stats merit the Hall of Fame, but he also belongs in the Hall of Fame because 'This is the man who invented the umpires signals.' "It is encouraging to see what one deaf person can do! This one man did not let his handicap of deafness stop him. He played 14 years in professional baseball. He was just 5'4" tall and weighed only 148 pounds but he was a big man in baseball. He played for Washington, Cincinnati and Chicago in the National League. He died at the age of 99 in 1961." Just think of it, every time you see an umpire signal a call in the game, it started because of a deaf man. This man made a great difference in the world of sports.

Extractions: William E. Hoy was a well-known deaf baseball player who played before Babe Ruths era. He was very famous because he invented umpire signals for the game. He taught umpires how to signal safe, ball, and out and the umpires still use these signals today. He did it so that the crowds and he could understand umpires calls on any action of the game. Dummy Hoy graduated from Ohio School for the Deaf as a valedictorian at age 15. Then he began playing 15 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1888 to 1902; he mostly played for the Cincinnati Reds. He was a very small baseball player standing 54 tall and weighing 148 pounds. He had proved that he could play well although he was not as big as other players. Dummy Hoy impressed people in his rookie year with the Washington Senators by leading in the National League with 82 stolen bases. He impressed everyone with his performance later in his career with some incredible statistics. He had stolen at least 30 bases in his first 12 seasons and scored at least 100 runs nine times. His career total of 597 stolen bases was all-time record until Ty Cobb broke it. With William Hoys defensive skills, he was number one for outfield in the major league with putouts and assists. In 1900 with the Chicago White Sox, he won the rare fielding Triple Crown with 337 putouts, .977 fielding average, and 45 assists in only 137 games. It was rare because he is still the only outfielder that leads the league in these three categories. Another impossible defensive performance that he has done was gunning three runners out at home plate in an inning - still a standing record today. No one has tied this record.

Extractions: Deaf Professional Baseball Edward Dundon was the world's first deaf professional baseball player. He played for Atlanta and Syracuse in the professional baseball team.

When he was not pitching, he batted .325. He umpired professional baseball games. He probably was the first deaf person umpired. John Ryn (1879-1891) was a versatile player who could play any positions. He was powerful hitter with Canton, O. of the old Tri- State League in 1889. Ryn was considered only deaf person to win the batting championship according to the records shown in the Reach Baseball Guide. He batted .358, collecting 150 hits, 116 runs, in 102 games. He also stole 77 bases. William E. Hoy graduated Ohio School for the Deaf with highest honors in the class. He was valedictorian for his school and he graduated at age 15. William began his 15 years professional career in 1886. He was the smallest deaf player to succeed in the major leagues with height of 5'4" and weight 148 pounds.

Extractions: Sports Section By Matt Leingang Staff Writer, Democrat and Chronicle Another year of passionate campaigning by Rochesters deaf community failed to get William "Dummy" Hoy elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday. Instead, the honor went to former manager Sparky Anderson, Negro Leagues star Turkey Steams and 19th century second baseman Bid McPhee. "Im dismayed, disillusioned and disgusted, said Panara, a retired professor with the National Technical Institute for the Deaf on the campus of the Rochester Institute of Technology. Hoy, an Ohio native, is the subject of a biography that will be published this spring by Rochester author Matthew Moore. The controversy will also be explored by Don Casper, a 31-year-old filmmaker from Rochester who is making a documentary about the origin of umpire hand signals. "I am confident that one day, Hoy will be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame," said Moore, whose company, MSM Productions, will publish the Hoy biography. "Until then, well continue to educate the general public about Hoys importance to baseball history. Our work goes on." Hoy hit .288 and collected 2,054 hits over 14 years, statistics that are similar to players already enshrined in Cooperstown. His 597 stolen bases still rank 17th in history.

Extractions: Rochester, N.Y., February 20, 2000 Going to bat for a deaf hero 3 projects with ties to the area focus on dead-ball era player who many believe belongs in the Hall of Fame By Matt Leingang Democrat and Chronicle But William "Dummy" Hoy never heard the roar of the crowd that day, nor did he hear the congratulations of his teammates. Hoy, who had been deaf since a childhood attack of spinal meningitis, played baseball in a world of silence. To offset his impairment, he developed a system of hand signals for coaches and teammates to communicate with him, a method that either makes Hoy one of the most influential players in history or someone who is merely part of baseball folklore. Hoy, an Ohio native who was regarded as one of the best defensive outfielders of his era, has failed to make an impression with the Hall of Fame Veterans Committee, which considers candidates from the 19th century. Again this year, Hoy does not figure to be among the inductees announced Feb. 29, despite having career statistics that are comparable to players already enshrined. "Its a glaring injustice," said Matthew Moore, the publisher of

Extractions: Washington, DC-On Sunday, April 8, Gallaudet University will dedicate its baseball field in honor of William "Dummy" Hoy who played professional baseball from 1886 to 1902 and who is credited with inventing the hand signals used by umpires. Hoy, who was deafened at the age of 2 and attended the Ohio School for the Deaf, played for the Cincinnati Reds and the Washington Senators. He asked the umpires to raise their right arm to signify and strike and left arm to signify a ball. In 1961, at the age of 99, Hoy threw out the ceremonial first pitch to open the World Series between the Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees. Two months later on December 15, Hoy passed away. On Sunday, April 8, a breakfast and program, by invitation only, will be held in the University's cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 11a.m. Invited guests and speakers include Brooks Robinson, former Baltimore Oriole third baseman, Buck O'Neil, a member of the Veterans Committee, and Miriam Skaggs, a relative of Hoy. After the breakfast, the guests will proceed to the baseball field where a plaque will be unveiled to commemorate the dedication of William "Dummy" Hoy Baseball Field.
