My favorite person that I read about was William “Dummy” Hoy. I have read about Helen Keller and on the history of Sign Language but, never about him and I found him very interesting. I think because just to think that all those signs that we use in baseball or most of them are from a deaf person! I just found interesting as well as him hitting the first grand-slam home run for the American League. Like you said, it’s crazy to think that they had such a huge impact on baseball and no one really knows about him. I didn’t I think that’s why I was so inspired by his story and many others.
