Call Multiple Scripts With Similar Name

I have a lot of scripts in one directory
I was just wondering if there was a single command that could call each script.

Example:
There are scripts, "stopThisService.sh", "stopThatService.sh", "stopAnotherService.sh", and "stopYetAnotherService.sh".

I'd like to be able to call them all by saying something like:
Code:
./stop*.sh


Anyone know of a concrete way of making all these calls without tossing them into another shell script?


Thanks.

A possible solution:
Code:
echo ./stop*.sh |xargs -n1 sh

The Unix philosophy is a computer operating system idea that means the operating system provides a set of basic tools that perform a limited, well-defined function, a unified filesystem as the main method of communication, and a shell scripting and command language to combine modular tools to perform more complex workflows.
True or False?
