It was a great compliment. I sure did appreciate reading up on it.

Many people don't realize that Deaf people really made some things the way they are in professional sports nowadays such as the balls and strike gestures in baseball. Also a result of a Deaf and mute professional baseball player back in the early 1900's named William "Dummy" Hoy. We're still trying to get him into Cooperstown based on his work involved with making the game it is today with the signals. He also has records that still stand TODAY! He threw out 3 players at home from the outfield. A feat that still has not been matched. He once stole 83 bases in a season. His induction into Cooperstown has still fallen on Deaf ears but we'll get him in one day!

Deaf people can do anything but hear. Hearing is overrated. We're perfectly capable of adapting to our surroundings with a little patience.
