The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy

UPDATE: The information on this event contained no identifying year, so we assumed it was this year since we just received it. But it turns out to be from two years ago, not 2011. Sorry for the confusion!
A theatrical production based around the life of Major Leaguer Dummy Hoy will be presented this weekend at the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre in Jonesborough, Tennessee. William Ellsworth (Dummy) Hoy was the first successful professional baseball player and is considered responsible for the hand signals used in baseball today. The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy is set in the 1880's and tells about Dummy’s first season in the minor leagues. This fictional comedy offers a compelling story of how Hoy found his place in life and impacted the lives of those around him.

I looked at the web page and shows nothing about this. You need show links to prove your material is true and current. I have seen several of your articles do not pan out.

Thanks for the heads up. We try to get all the facts right, but things will slip through sometimes. If you see anything else that looks amiss, let us know.
