In 1886 William â€œDummyâ€ Hoy was the first deaf baseball player to join the minor leagues. Allen Meyer and Michael Nowakâ€™s comedic play The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy, speculates on the challenges â€œDummyâ€ faces as a member of the Oshkosh Baseball Team. With a stern manager, a play-by-the-rules umpire, an all too curious newspaper reporter and rowdy team of ballplayers we witness his struggles to be understood both on and off the field as he wrestles with his past, fights to play the game he loves and how by seeking to gain acceptance by others â€œDummyâ€ revolutionizes the rules of our great American pastime. A comedy about seeing the advantages of difference The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy drives home the beauty of the human spirit in pursuit of a dream.
