Did legendary deaf major league pitcher Dummy Taylor face legendary deaf major league hitter Dummy Hoy in a real major league game? Yes. The only time they faced each other was at the game on May 16, 1902. Hoy’s Cincinnati Reds opposed Taylor’s New York Giants on that day. How did both fare against each other? Hoy got two hits off Taylor. But Taylor got the last laugh as his team, the Giants, won 5-3. Never again would both men face each other in a real game.
