For the first time in history, Beep Baseball will debut in the Tri-Cities at the Tri-Cities Dust Devils game.
What is Beep Baseball?
The National Beep Baseball Association was organized in 1976 for visually impaired and blind adults to be able to play baseball. Beep baseball is played on a grass field with 6 fielders and 1 or 2 "spotters" from one team, and the pitcher, catcher, and batter from the other team. The fielders and batter are blindfolded. The ball is a modified and over-sized softball that beeps and the 5 foot tall foam bases are blue with electronics that cause it to buzz steadily after the ball is hit.
The purpose of the event is to educate the community and attendees about adaptive sports for the blind and visually impaired. All proceeds will go to the Edith Bishel Center for the
Blind and Visually Impaired.
The event will be held on July 2nd at 6:15pm at the GESA Stadium in Pasco, WA. The event includes a buffet dinner on Dusty’s Deck while watching the Beep Baseball game between the Dust Devils and the Seattle South King Sluggers, a visually impaired and blind team from Seattle.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for kids (ages 4-12). Tickets include dinner, Beep Baseball game and Upper Box seating for the Dust Devils game immediately following this event.
Tickets are limited and going fast.
