George "Dummy" KIHM is my cousin. George was a deaf mute who starred as a baseball player in Delphos, Ohio and later became one of the minor leagues' most successful and famous players In the American Association.This photo shows not only George (standing, far right), but his brother, Al (sitting on the floor on the far left). One source claims that this is not Al, but is the famous astronomer Leslie Pelletier.George was given the nickname "Dummy" after his deaf mute role model, William E. "Dummy" HOY.George began playing baseball in the school system in Columbus, Ohio (on the Columbus School for the Deaf team) when he was eight years old.In about 1891 the family was back in Delphos and he was playing baseball professionally. His fielding and heavy hitting was largely responsible for Delphos winning the Northwestern Ohio championship in 1893 and 1894. He was a catcher at that time and in 1895 he was signed to play first base for Findlay, Ohio. Findlay won the pennant largely as a result of George's high quality play. Later George played in Tacoma, Washington, and for the famed Toledo Mud Hens, as well as for New York.
