Guide to Baseball Fiction: Plays
by Tim Morris
The University of Texas at Arlington
Back to the Main Guide Page Albert Camus, La chute Baseball plays are a minor genre, far outnumbered by prose fiction and even by films. But there are a few notable plays and I will try to list them here. For the moment no alphabetical index, or even separate page, is necessary.
  • Abbott, George, and Douglas Wallop (book); Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (music and lyrics). Damn Yankees. (1955). Fan sells soul to bring Senators the flag. Adapted from Wallop's 1954 novel . Energetic and adult musical that has remained in the American repertoire. Filmed in 1958 with original stars Ray Walston and Gwen Verdon; revived in 1994 with Bebe Neuwirth. Boocock, Paul. Boocock's House of Baseball. (2005). One-man show that "examines contemporary American politics through the vehicle of baseball." "Mr. Boocock serves up a stream-of-consciousness mishmash full of baseball moments that are too well known to be illuminating and Republican-bashing that is too simplistic to be funny" Neil Genzlinger in the New York Times, 4 July 2005. Dresser, Richard.

Historical Hot Stove by Bruce Markusen Previous Columns Cooperstown Confidential - Regular Season Edition Pride In Pinstripes Perhaps we take for granted that a player like Pride has been able to forge a journeyman career in the major leagues and a solid career in the minors despite playing with only a small percentage of his hearing. Yet, we shouldn’t take make the mistake of assuming that deafness is only a nuisance in the path toward the big leagues; just try playing a game of softball with cotton stuffed into both of your ears and feel the short-term havoc it plays with your equilibrium. Making the major leagues is tough enough; making the major leagues without complete use of one of your primary senses is downright laudatory—and testament to a player’s will and dedication to the game. For that, Curtis Pride deserves an added helping of respect. Although Pride is one of a handful of deaf players to make the climb to the majors, he is not the first deaf player in big league history—and not the most famous either. Both of those honors belong to 19th century legend William “Dummy” Hoy (unfortunately, “Dummy” was a commonly used nickname for players during the game’s early history). Both determined and athletic, Hoy not only overcame a lack of hearing but also proved that being 5’4” and 148 pounds doesn’t necessarily exclude one from professional success on the ballfield. Hoy’s lack of size and absence of hearing discouraged major league teams from giving him a shot until he was 26, but the hardworking Hoy made up for his late start by collecting over 2,000 hits, batting .288, and playing a terrific center field (including one game when he threw out three runners at the plate). Some historians consider Hoy a player of sufficient quality to merit consideration for the Hall of Fame.

Media Releases November 14, 1999
A new homepage focusing on William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy (18621961), the first deaf major-leaguer, is now online. It’s sponsored by, a division of MSM Productions, Ltd. Hoy is a legendary figure in the Deaf community. He is considered the originator of the hand signals used by umpires throughout the world: raising the right hand for a strike, the left hand for a ball, and the signs for "out" and "safe." Some baseball historians still consider this claim to be hearsay, folklore, or myth. Umpire Bill Klem, who began his professional career in 1905, 2 years after Hoy retired from professional baseball, is officially credited with inventing the signals, as noted on his plaque in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. But diligent research has turned up old newspaper and magazine accounts describing Hoy’s use of signs on the field as early as 1888 and 1891—well before Klem began umpiring! While these achievements (and these are only a few of the total) would seem to be more than sufficient for induction into the Hall of Fame, Hoy has been consistently bypassed. Why? Probably because he was deaf.

    Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Part 1
    By Toni Lee Robinson Robert hefted the bat. He swung again and again. There was a wonderful tingly stretch in his muscles. His body felt fluid and light with energy. He felt like he could fly! His dream was about to come true. For several years he had played with minor league teams. Today he would play his first major league game.
    The majors would be a milestone for any player. For Robert, it was like belting a homer to the moon. Robert had been born with almost no sense of hearing. In some ways, life had been harder for him than for other kids. He had to learn different ways to communicate. He learned American Sign Language. He could talk with his hands.
    His parents had insisted that Robert learn oral speech as well. For most of his life, he had gone to two different schools. His first years were spent at a school for the deaf. Then he had "mainstreamed" in a public school for part of the day. He also spent extra hours each day at the deaf school.

    Stephen Jay Gould: His Mismeasure of Baseball by Cyril Morong Email Before he died in 2002, Stephen Jay Gould was one of the world’s most famous scientists and one of the world’s most famous baseball fans. That is why his posthumous book, “Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville: A Lifelong Fan’s Passion for Baseball” is so disappointing. He makes several statements that do not stand up to scientific scrutiny. Lets start with Dummy Hoy, who played outfield in the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. He writes “Dummy Hoy belongs in the Hall of Fame by sole virtue of his excellent, sustained play over a long career (p. 128).” No, he is not even close. He is 462 nd in Win Shares (WS) per Plate Appearance and 546 th in Total Player Rating or TPR (.425 per 648 plate appearances-see the links on my homepage). His career OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) was .759 while the position average was .767. Bill James gives him a B+ in fielding while Pete Palmer has him with +10 in career fielding runs. His career offensive winning percentage (OWP) is .568 while the position average is .560 (this is park adjusted). Through 2002, he was tied for 306 th in career runs created against the league average. He was 299

    In this edition of 19 to 21, John Shiffert looks at Christy Mathewson 19 to 21: No, that’s not Tom Seaver #32, September 6, 2005 News Item: October 7, 1925 – Christopher Mathewson dies at Saranac Lake, New York at the age of 45. It is hard for us to imagine, 80 years later, just how traumatic an event the death of Christy Mathewson was for the baseball world. Even though Matty hadn’t thrown a pitch in more than nine years, he was still, well, the best word is “revered,” throughout baseball. Not only was he, at the time, widely considered the greatest pitcher of all time, but he was even more widely held up as a paragon of virtue, manliness and all the other values that were so highly prized in post-Victorian society. These two images played off each other to the extent that Matty’s image seemed to make him a greater pitcher than he really was (not that he wasn’t great) and his prowess on the mound led normally-level-headed writers to flights of embarrassing literary fancy. Perhaps one of Matty’s biographers, Ray Robinson, said it best… “His enormous devotion to the game and to principle, his attractive physical appearance, his razor-sharp, eclectic intelligence, his sometimes frightening honesty that bordered, as some insisted, on unmitigated self-righteousness were the stuff of a `collaboration between the Almighty and a composer of fiction,’ as Donald Honig has written.”

She asked DKTC to create some art projects to help raise funds for DWAVE. Those art projects are made for the silent auction. She explained how their organization works. We created beads and crafts such as pins, magnets, bracelets, and necklaces. We hope that the silent auction is a big hit!!! We'd love to do those projects again in the near future.
