"Dummy" Hoy invented the hand signs the umpires use. Before Hoy invented the signs, deaf baseball players didn't know whether they were safe or out. To make it easier for the deaf to play baseball, "Dummy" created signs for safe, out, strike, ball, etc. These signs became accepted by all umpires for all games, not just the ones in which Hoy played.

Do you know how many bases William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy stole in his major league career? Over 600, according to Sam Crawford. "That alone should be enough to put him in the Hall of Fame!" said Crawford. Hitting A Home Run For Deaf People Everywhere

Goodwin & Company From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Goodwin & Company was an American tobacco manufacturer from New York City. Initially E. Goodwin and Brother, the company was founded before the American Civil War. It was known for its cigarette brands "Gypsy Queen" and "Old Judge". In 1890, the company was merged, along with four others, into James Buchanan Duke's American Tobacco Company to create an American monopoly on tobacco product manufacturing and retail.

Today the company is mostly remembered for its tobacco trading cards, depicting baseball players, other athletes, and a variety of social scenes and portraits. In 1887, Goodwin & Co. were the among the first to issue trading cards to promote their brands, first using sepia-toned photographic albumen prints, and later chromolithographic reproductions of multi-colored etchings.
