The I See The Crowd Roar package includes a DVD of the documentary film located inside the back pocket and offers a free digital copy of the book.
The book and video document the life of William “Dummy” Hoy a professional baseball player from the late 1800’s. William Hoy’s story is both amazing and powerful.
One of Major League baseball’s first deaf players, Hoy’s life and achievements on baseball fields are chronicled from his youth to the closing of an amazing 14 year major league career.
Despite his hurdles, he became an outstanding Major League Baseball player. He lived his life on and off the field as a CHARACTERED man.
Learn of his many achievements on the field, including being credited with the creation of hand signals still used in baseball today!
The book teaches what it means to be a CHARACTERED© individual.
CHARACTERED® is an acronym that uses the first letter of the following words to show the meaning of:
Courage, Honesty, Accountability, Respectfulness, Authenticity, Commitment, Trustworthiness, Ethical Behavior, Responsibility, Enlightenment, and Disciplined Behavior – all traits that William possessed and lived!
These are virtues that society values and that make a person a better citizen, neighbor, and friend–just like William Hoy.
