With some research

after a time you just want to go “Arrrgghh!”

Looking at player records at baseball-almanac.com, when seeing the name Dummy Taylor, I clicked. Taylor was with the 1901 New York Giants.

Three pitchers on that team were nicknamed “Dummy” -- William Joseph Deegan, George Michael Leitner and Luther Haden Taylor. Wondering if all three were deaf or mutes or both or however it’s said these days, I googled William Joseph Deegan. Wikipedia says Deegan was a deaf mute.

Wanting more information, I checked other web sites and came across one pushing for Dummy Hoy’s membership in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

William Ellsworth Hoy played 14 years in the major leagues (1888-1902), with the Senators, Bisons, Browns, Reds, Colonels and White Sockings. Hoy’s career batting average was .287, with 2,042 hits. Not exactly Hall of Fame numbers. He stole 594 bases, but rules were different, and some stolen bases then would not count today.

But that’s not the ARRRGGHH! thing. The same web site has a story (??) on “The Seven Black Presidents Before Barrack Obama” – John Hanson (under the Articles of Confederation), Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

As with many web sites, the really ARRRGGHH! is in the comments. To wit:

“Thomas Jefferson was impeached because he was lonely when his wife, Martha passed away. Of course he was love the black woman, Sally Hemming’s 6 great great children did interviewed with Oprah few years ago and I watched Oprah and very interesting one of Jefferson’s (5)great grandson who lives in Redmonds, Washington. he say He accepted the way acenstory of his great grandfather who made mistaken. But Sally’s childrens from that time Jefferson admitted he have two children was came from Jefferson’s brother was also involved. It is not clearly I have to looking to find a website later.

“I love Jeffereson’s background with Sally Hemming. his background really hit me hard and understood the plantation he put Sally for slave. I can understand his white children doesn’t along with Sally’s second son who is part of Martha’s children are not connected anymore .. Afterward,they were freedom later after Abraham Linclon finally freedom later on.

”They called them salt and pepper.”
And:

“I agree with the research, 7 black presidents, the black culture comes from the riches country in the world Africa, and we were Kings and Queens, royalty.”

PEOPLE! USE THE SPELLING AND GRAMMAR FUNCTION! LOOK AT A MAP! SEE THE NUMBER OF COUNTRIES THAT ARE IN AFRICA, “THE RICHES COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!” THOSE PEOPLE PROBABLY VOTE!
