"I try not to torture myself," he said. "But with the way things are now - with the way the ball flies, the smaller ballparks and the diluted pitching - I might have 70 by the All-Star Break." Foster was talking about home runs, though he holds the Reds' single-season record with 52 in 1977. For that and his general offensive excellence with the Reds from 1971-81, Foster is the latest player to be voted by the Baseball Writers' Association of America into the Reds Hall of Fame.

Extractions: A Little Bit Of History Compiled by Joel Balberman Oftentimes it helps to understand the way we do things as umpires if we know a little bit about the past. In many ways, the rule book is a history of the game, because the rules reflect some of the plays that have happened and the changes that have been brought about because of those incidents. One example of a change brought about by the history of the game is the origin of the use of signals by umpires. This account from a book entitled A Century Of Baseball Lore by John Thorn: "William Ellsworth Hoy came to the big leagues as a 27 year-old rookie in 1888. He was immediately tagged with the nickname "Dummy" - not because of any deficiencies of intellect, but because he was a deaf mute. He is credited with inducing home plate umpires to raise the right arm to signal a strike, since Hoy couldn't hear the call. Soon umpires began to signal strikes for all batters, thus relieving the strain on their vocal cords and making it easier for fans to follow the action." Things have never been easy for umpires, but the period from the 1880's through the 1890's was particularly rough on umpires. For example, there was a sign in the Kansas City ballpark that read:

Extractions: History of umpiring Did you ever wonder what caused an umpire to first signal a called strike by raising his right hand? Watching umpires it's almost as if they think the players are deaf. Or maybe the hand signals for balls and strikes have always been for the benefit of the fans who can't hear the call from so far away. bodyOffer(3448) Actually an umpire did first signal balls and strikes with his hand for a deaf baseball player who was one of the best major league players of his era, William "Dummy" Hoy. Before he suggested the signals to an umpire in 1887, Hoy had to read the lips of the umpire to know if each pitch was a strike or ball. The pitchers on the other teams often took advantage of the situation to throw the next pitch before he was ready. Born a deaf mute during the Civil War in Houcktown, Ohio, Hoy isn't in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. He wasn't even inducted into the Hancock County (a county in Northwestern Ohio, about 40 miles south of Toledo) Sports Hall of Fame until 12 years ago. Regardless, he not only was one of the best players of his time but holds records that have never been broken. It wasn't always easy for Hoy. Two playwrights, Allen Meyer and Michael Nowak wrote, "The Single Season of Dummy Hoy," a comedy about his first year as a major league baseball player. The play debuted in 1987 in New York and Chicago and was about Hoy's first year as a player, 1886.
