You think baseball is tough now? Imagine trying to play if you couldn't hear the fans cheering you on, or your coach telling you it was your turn to go hit, or if you couldn't hear the umpire say "Strike" or "Ball," and doing all of that in the Major Leagues, against the toughest competition in the world! William Hoy had this problem and bravely rose to the challenge that his deafness presented. Read all about how he overcame his seemingly impossible roadblock to become an inspiration to so many. Despite his lack of hearing, he never gave up, and was inducted into three different Halls of Fame, and is in the top 25 of all time in MLB for steals, assists by an outfielder and double plays made by an outfielder! Read all about his inspiring success story in Silent Star -- The Story of Deaf Major Leaguer William Hoy.
