The William Hoy Story

The William Hoy Story

What’s not to love about a story where someone overcomes odds to be great?  Thanks to William Hoy (and others to be fair) we have the signals that prevail today during baseball games to signify balls, strikes, safe and out.  The illustrations throughout are somewhat simple in their lines and yet, the facial expressions are impressive.  A bibliography is not included but the author, Nancy Churnin, is one of the people on the Hoy for the Hall committee working to get William Hoy into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
