random deafsports talk

part of a posting

The conversations about hand signals and sign stealing have resurfaced an
old baseball legend: That hand signs, as we know them, were popularized by
deaf baseball players in the 1880’s.

The legend
There are two baseball players involved in this legend. The first is Ed
“Dummy” Dundon, who played in the early 1800s and is thought to be the
first deaf player to umpire a professional baseball game, in 1886. The
second is William “Dummy” Hoy, who started his career a few years later.
(A note: Yes, such offensive nicknames were commonplace at the time.)

Both players were deaf and used hand signs to communicate with their
teammates. Around the 1950s, Hoy started getting credit for popularizing
the use of hand signals as a strategic form of communication. Like so many
baseball legends, the story stuck, and is the type of secondhand
information forever knocking around in the brains of the sport’s biggest
fans.

Question:
Did Hoy invent these signs? Or was Dundon the first one with these
signs?

Everyone knows who Hoy was. Practically no one knows who Dundon
was (as the first deaf major leaguer!
