Described by blind athletes as “a dream come true,” Beepball adds a spin on baseball that allows everyone to compete. Players are guided by sound, not sight - the sound of the beeping ball, buzzing bases, and cues from the pitcher. While the game provides unique opportunities for blind athletes, it also brings the blind community a step closer to ever sought-after acceptance and equality.
For the athletes, Beepball is much more than just a game. It brings together all people, personalities, and athletic abilities, and puts them on an even playing field.

baseball community and heritage
