Project Main Details

Signs of the Time 1900s Reporter 
Signs of the Time is a documentary on the origins of signals in baseball. The goal is to submit to film festivals and hopefully get distribution for broadcast and home video sales.

This voiceover is something that an early 1900s reporter said in a newspaper article about Billy "Dummy" Hoy, a deaf ball player from the late 1800s. A rougher character voice would be good for this.

The audition sample is the length of the final piece.

Script Details

Full script:

"Players and managers are talking of introducing a system of signals to be used by the umpires. All baseball lovers have suffered because they could not make out the nature of the decisions at a distance from home plate. It has been suggested that the extending of the umpires right arm above his head shall indicate a strike. The rising of his left arm shall mean a ball has been called. Billy Hoy, who is at Cincinnati in speaking of this scheme a day or two ago said… "
