Thedailystar.com - Local News Article on one group's efforts to get dummy hoy elected into the National baseball Hall of Fame. http://www.thedailystar.com/news/stories/1998/07/27/ogdeaf.html
Extractions: Blakesley, a sign-language teacher from Albany, signed most of the proceedings for the group, which was attending the ceremonies to lobby for the election of a deaf 19th-century ballplayer to the hall of fame. She saw the signs and flyers in support of William "Dummy" Hoy and volunteered her time. Many in the group to whom Blakesley was signing were with a Rochester-based committee seeking credit for Hoy, who played from 1888 to 1902 and easily had the greatest career of a seriously-handicapped player. Bob Panara, leader of the American Athletic Association for the Deaf's Committee for Dummy Hoy, said the group had spoken to hall officials about getting a sign-language interpreter or closed-captioning for the video screen by the main stage.

Extractions: Hoy was a small man, 5'4" or 5'5" tall, weighing 145-155 pounds, probably the shortest major-league outfielder in history. What he lacked in heft, he made up for in cunning and swiftness. He was a celebrated “flyhawk,” a great centerfielder, on a par with Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, and Tris Speaker. During his rookie year in the majors (1888), Hoy led the National League with 82 stolen bases, a record that tops those of some of the most celebrated Hall of Famers. (Ty Cobb stole no bases during his rookie year, Babe Ruth 10.) His career total: 597 to 607 stolen bases (depending on which account you read).

He was a favorite of the Giants' John McGraw , perhaps because he could not talk back. McGraw learned the rudiments of signing so he could communicate with Taylor from the bench. They were sharing opinions of Tim Hurst 's umpiring one day without knowing the arbiter had a deaf relative and was also proficient in signing. Hurst ejected them both. Image provided by
