TO: Team Contacts and Players ***NOTE correction from fall newsletter!

From: NBBA Board Per a Board decision, each visually impaired player is required to have a letter of certification of impairment from a qualified source in order to be considered eligible for play in the 2003 World Series in Denver, CO.

This letter of certification must declare the player to be visually impaired as per the Federal government guidelines for this disability.*** Those guidelines are (to be declared legally blind): WITH CORRECTION a visual acuity of 20/200 or less in the better eye AND/OR a 20 degree field of vision or less. (See for further clarification.); ***((to be declared visually impaired): WITH CORRECTION a visual acuity of 20/70 or less in the better eye AND/OR a visual field restriction of 30 degrees or less.

The letter must come from a qualified source. A few examples are: an optometrist, ophthalmologist or other eye care specialist; a physician eligible to test vision; a government agency (city, state or federal) that provides vision testing OR disability services AND has a current record of the players impairment. If you or a player have any questions regarding the source they will be using, CONTACT THE NBBA SECRETARY! I will let you know if the source will be acceptable by the NBBA

THE LETTERS MUST BE DATED WITHIN THE LAST 2 YEARS!! Meaning all letters must be dated no earlier than Jan. 2001.

Team contacts must turn in all letters no later than with their final team rosters, which are due by July 1st, 2003. If a player does not have a letter of certification on file with the NBBA secretary by this deadline, they will not be eligible for consideration for play as a visually impaired player. If a player is an "add-on", the letter may be provided to the NBBA secretary at the time the player is added to the team roster.

If you have any questions, please contact the NBBA Secretary at or (614) 442-1444. Thank you.
