Interesting documentary on an old-time ball player.
As someone who loves to read and do research on baseball of the 1800s, I came across this documentary on the .... documentary channel, interesting enough.
Much of what was highlighted in this documentary were well-known facts to me; i.e. that hand signals were devised, first with coaches and teammates, and later used by umpires, to signal various calls made during the game, like ball/strikes and outs. His personal life and the effort of different people and groups attempting to have him inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame were also highlighted.
It appears to me to be made with an extremely low budget therefore, I cannot be too critical of the final package, but a couple things get it downgraded to me: The background music is non-stop ragtime, which after a couple of minutes became very annoying, and the segment about the efforts for his Hall of Fame induction could have used some bigger names who have given support to the cause. Overall though, I thought it was entertaining and hit all the major points in Mr. Hoy's life and baseball career.
