No Dummies: Deafness, Baseball, and American Culture
Edwards, R. A. R.
Sign Language Studies, v12 n2 p171-187 Win 2012
This article begins by examining the historical and social factors that led to 1901 being the "deafest" year in major league baseball history with four deaf players. In particular, the author discusses the career of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy, a deaf man from Ohio who became the most celebrated deaf player in history and explores the reasons why he is not more celebrated in the mainstream culture. (Contains 47 notes.)
