Wall Street Journal, Tuesday August 18, 2009, In Beep Ball, Umpires Aren't Blind, But the Players Are
Video from Article in the Wall Street Journal, Tuesday, August 18, 2009, In Beep Ball, Umpires Aren't Blind, But the Players Are

On June 27, 2009, the Cleveland Scrappers and RHI Indy Thunder took part in a beep baseball demo in coordination with the Kentucky Association for Blind athletes, held in Louisville Kentucky. The game was competitive and the hope was to bring the knowledge of this wonderful sport to the area to start up a team and in the future a tournament.
The Courier Journal wrote a wonderful article and took great photos which are available to view below.
