The national anthem before Monday’s Padres-Reds game was signed for the hearing-impaired as part of Cincinnati’s annual William “Dummy” Hoy Night.
Organized by the Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center of Greater Cincinnati, the event honors the first, and arguably most accomplished deaf Major Leaguer. Hoy played from 1888-1902, finishing his career with 594 steals, 1,426 runs and a .287 batting average. He was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2003.
